PyQt5 – How to set text to progress bar ?

  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

In this article we will see how to set text to progress bar. When we create a progress bar only progress percentage text is visible but we can also set some text on it.

Below is how normal progress bar vs progress bar with text looks like.

In order to do this we will use setFormat method, although it is used to set the format i.e percentage indicator but if we pass normal text to it it will display it in process bar.




# 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):
        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 progress bar
        bar = QProgressBar(self)
  
        # setting geometry to progress bar
        bar.setGeometry(200, 150, 200, 30)
  
        # set value to progress bar
        bar.setValue(70)
  
        # setting text 
        bar.setFormat('This is progress bar')
  
        # setting alignment to centre
        bar.setAlignment(Qt.AlignCenter)
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
