PyQt5 – Multi line label

In this article we will see how we can create a multi-line label, when we create a label and set text to it and if the text length is greater then the length of the label extra text did not show, multi-line label make that extra text go into the other line. Below is the representation of how normal and multi-line label looks like

In order to do this we will use setWordWrap method.

Syntax : label.setWordWrap(True)

Argument : It takes bool as argument



Return : None

Below is the implementation

# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
window.show()
  
# start the app
