PyQt5 Label – Accessing opacity level of the Opacity effect

  • Last Updated : 10 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can access the opacity level of the opacity effect of the label, the more the value of opacity the label will be clearly the visible and if opacity value is lesser more transparent it will become. By default opacity level is 0.7 and in order to set the opacity we use setOpacity method.

In order to do this we use opacity method.

Syntax : opacity_effect.opacity(n)

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns float value



Note : Opacity level value ranges from 0 to 1

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):
        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 label
        label = QLabel("Label", self)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(200, 100, 150, 60)
  
        # setting alignment to the label
        label.setAlignment(Qt.AlignCenter)
  
        # setting font
        label.setFont(QFont('Arial', 15))
  
        # setting style sheet of the label
        label.setStyleSheet("QLabel"
                            "{"
                            "border : 2px solid green;"
                            "background : lightgreen;"
                            "}")
  
        # creating a opacity effect
        self.opacity_effect = QGraphicsOpacityEffect()
  
        # setting opacity level
        self.opacity_effect.setOpacity(0.3)
  
        # adding opacity effect to the label
        label.setGraphicsEffect(self.opacity_effect)
  
        # result label
        result = QLabel(self)
  
        # setting geometry of the result label
        result.setGeometry(200, 200, 300, 30)
  
        # getting opacity level
        level = self.opacity_effect.opacity()
  
        # setting text to the result label
        result.setText("Opacity level : " + str(level))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
