PyQt5 – Program to get caption of Radio Button

In this article we will see how to get the text (caption) of the radio button. When we create radio button we set some text to it, with the help of setText method we can update the text in it.

Overview of the implementation:

1. We will create a radio button.
2. Set some text to the radio button with the help of setText method.
3. Retrieve the text and save it the variable with the help of text method.
4. Create a label and set the retrieved text to it.

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 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 a radio button
        radio_button = QRadioButton(self)
        # setting geometry of radio button
        radio_button.setGeometry(200, 150, 120, 40)
        # setting text to radio button
        radio_button.setText("GEEK Radio button ")
        # get the text of radio button
        text = radio_button.text()
        # create label to display the text
        label = QLabel(self)
        # set text to label
        label.setText("Caption of radio button is  : " + text)
        # set the geometry of label
        label.setGeometry(180, 200, 300, 30)
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
