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 another 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.

Code : 


# importing the required libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import *
from PyQt5 import QtCore
from PyQt5.QtGui import *
import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # set the title
        # 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
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app

Output : pyqt-hide-label As we can see the label 2 is hidden in the output window.
