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

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 background color of window
        # self.setStyleSheet("background-color : black;")
        # 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 label
        label = QLabel("Label", self)
        # setting alignment
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(200, 100, 150, 60)
        # setting border
        label.setStyleSheet("border : 8px solid black")
        # creating a QGraphicsDropShadowEffect object
        shadow = QGraphicsDropShadowEffect()
        # setting blur radius
        # setting border color
        # adding shadow to the label
        # creating label to show the color
        result = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry
        result.setGeometry(100, 200, 350, 30)
        # getting shadow color
        shadow_color = shadow.color()
        # showing text through label
        result.setText("Shadow color : " + str(shadow_color))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
