PyQt5 Label – Accessing shadow color

In this article we will see how we can access the shadow color of the label, when we create a shadow to the label it is by default of black color although we can its color with the help of setColor method.

In order to access the shadow color of label with the help of color method

Syntax : shadow.color()
Here shadow is the QGraphicsDropShadowEffect object

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns QColor object
