In this article we will see how to remove the percentage symbol the progress bar i..e ‘%’, when we create progress bar by default percentage and percentage symbol appear.

In order to remove only the percentage symbol we have to change the format of the progress bar, below is how normal progress bar looks like vs after removing the percentage symbol looks like.

By default the formatting is ‘%p%’ here p represents the percentage, if we change it to ‘%p’ it will show only number not the percentage symbol.

Below is the implementation.

# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
from PyQt5 import QtCore, QtGui
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating progress bar
        bar = QProgressBar(self)
        # setting geometry to progress bar
        bar.setGeometry(200, 100, 200, 30)
        # setting the value
        # setting alignment to center
        # removing percentage symbol
        bar.setFormat("% p")
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
