PyQt5 – Name of Progress Bar
  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

In this article we will see how to set and get the name of progress bar. Name of progress bar is basically a named assigned to a progress bar by the developer. Name is set in order to classify the progress bar as while designing the GUI (Graphical User Interface) application, progress bar is created in order to classify them names are given to them like “loading”, “downloading”, “transfer” etc.

In order to set the name to progress bar setAccessibleName method is used and to get the name accessibleName method is used, if no name is assigned accessibleName() method will return blank string.

Syntax :

bar.setAccessibleName(name)
bar.accessibleName()

Argument :
setAccessibleName takes string as argument.
accessibleName takes no argument.

Return :
setAccessibleName returns None.
accessibleName returns string.



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 progress bar
        bar = QProgressBar(self)
  
        # setting geometry to progress bar
        bar.setGeometry(200, 100, 200, 30)
  
        # setting the value
        bar.setValue(30)
  
        # setting alignment to center
        bar.setAlignment(Qt.AlignCenter)
  
        # setting up the name
        bar.setAccessibleName("Loading")
  
        # getting the name
        name = bar.accessibleName()
  
        # creating label to display the name
        label = QLabel("Name of progress bar = " + name, self)
  
        # adjusting the size of label
        label.adjustSize()
  
        # changing the position of label
        label.move(200, 150)
  
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
