PyQt5 – How to set tooltip duration for Label | setToolTipDuration method

In PyQt5, there is an option to set tool tip using setToolTip() method, The tooltip or infotip or a hint is a common graphical user interface element. It is used in conjunction with a cursor, usually a pointer. The user hovers the pointer over an item, without clicking it, and a tooltip may appear as a small “hover box” with information about the item being hovered over.

By default, there is no time limit for tool tip i.e for how much time tip should appear. In this article, we will see how to set tool tip duration for a label. In order to do this we will use setToolTipDuration() method.
