PyQt5 – lower() method for Labels

In PyQt5, when we create more than one label at same position they overlap each other such that the label which was made at last should be shown at top. Although, we can set the opaque level but sometimes some label have lower priority and that’s why they should be at below level therefore, lower() method is used.

Syntax : label.lower()

Argument : It takes no argument.

Action performed : It sets lower priority to the label.

Code :





# importing the required libraries
from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # set the title
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel("old label ", self)
        # setting up the border and background color
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black; 
                                    background : pink")
        # moving the label
        self.label_1.move(100, 100)
        # creating a new label widget
        self.label_2 = QLabel("new Label ", self)
        # setting up the border and background color
        self.label_2.setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black;
                                    background : green")
        # setting lower priority to this label
        # moving the label
        self.label_2.move(110, 110)
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
