PyQt5 – How to get Label coordinates ?

  • Last Updated : 26 Mar, 2020

The main window in PyQt5 is like graph it has x-axis and y-axis, all the widgets are positioned according to their x, y co-ordinates. When we create label is formed at the top left corner, the op left co-ordinates are (0, 0), we can move the label using move() method.
In this article, we will see how to get the co-ordinates of label. In order to do so we will use x() method for x co-ordinate and y() method for y co-ordinate.

x_position = label.x()
y_position =label.y()

Argument : Both method takes no argument.



Return : Both returns integer.

Code :




# importing the required libraries
  
from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
import sys
  
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
  
  
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
  
        # set the title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python")
  
        # setting  the geometry of window
        self.setGeometry(60, 60, 600, 400)
  
  
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel(self)
  
        # moving position
        self.label_1.move(100, 100)
  
        # setting up the border
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border :3px solid blue;")
  
        # getting x and y co-ordinates
        x = str(self.label_1.x())
        y = str(self.label_1.y())
  
        # setting label text
        self.label_1.setText(x+", "+ y)
  
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_2 = QLabel(self)
  
        # moving position
        self.label_2.move(160, 170)
  
        # setting up the border
        self.label_2.setStyleSheet("border :3px solid yellow;")
  
        # getting x and y co-ordinates
        x = str(self.label_2.x())
        y = str(self.label_2.y())
  
        # setting label text
        self.label_2.setText(x + ", " + y)
  
        # show all the widgets
        self.show()
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())

Output :
pyqt-get-coordinates
