class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
        # calling method

    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a push button
        button = QPushButton("CLICK", self)
