In this article, we will see how to get the text of push button. When we create push button we set some text to it which will be visible on main window, we can retrieve the text using text method.

Syntax : button.text()
Argument : It takes no argument.
Return : It returns string.

Code :  

Python3




# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import *
from PyQt5.QtGui import *
from PyQt5.QtCore import *
import sys
 
 
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
 
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
 
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
 
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
 
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
 
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
 
        # creating a push button
        button = QPushButton("CLICK", self)
 
        # setting geometry of button
        button.setGeometry(200, 150, 100, 40)
 
        # adding action to a button
        button.clicked.connect(self.clickme)
 
        # getting text in button
        text = button.text()
 
        # creating label to print text
        label = QLabel(text, self)
        label.move(200, 200)
 
    # action method
    def clickme(self):
 
        # printing pressed
        print("pressed")
 
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
 
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
 
# start the app
