PyQt5 – How to hide label | label.setHidden method

In this article, we will see how we can hide the Label in the PyQt5 application. A label is a graphical control element which displays text on a form. It is usually a static control; having no interactivity. A label is generally used to identify a nearby text box or other widget.

In order to hide the label we use setHidden() method, this method allows user to set if the widget should be visible or hidden, it belongs to the QWidget class.

Syntax : label.setHidden(True)

Argument : It takes bool as an argument.

        super().__init__()
  
  
        # set the title
        self.setWindowTitle("Label")
  
        # setting  the geometry of window
        self.setGeometry(0, 0, 400, 300)
  
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel("Normal Label", self)
  
        # moving position
        self.label_1.move(100, 100)
  
        # setting up border
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border: 1px solid black;")
  
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_2 = QLabel("Hidden Label", self)
  
        # moving position
        self.label_2.move(100, 150)
  
        # setting up border
        self.label_2.setStyleSheet("border: 1px solid black;")
  
        # hiding the label
        self.label_2.setHidden(True)
  
  
        # 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())
