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

In this article we will see how exactly we can set and get the description of the progress bar. Sescription of progress bar is basically detailed information of the progress bar like what thing progress bar represent and what formatting and styling we have done, there is no particular format for the description it can be normal casual language.

In order to set the description of progress bar we use setAccessibleDescription method and for getting the description we use accessibleDescription, if no description is set accessibleDescription method will give results as null string.

Syntax :

bar.setAccessibleDescription(info)
bar.accessibleDescription()

Argument :
setAccessibleDescription takes string as argument.
accessibleDescription takes no argument.

Return :
setAccessibleDescription returns None.
accessibleDescription 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(70)
  
        # setting alignment to center
        bar.setAlignment(Qt.AlignCenter)
  
        # setting the description
        bar.setAccessibleDescription("Description of progress bar")
  
        # getting the description
        des = bar.accessibleDescription()
  
        # creating label to display description
        label = QLabel("Description = " + des, self)
  
        # adjusting the size of label
        label.adjustSize()
  
        # moving the label
        label.move(200, 150)
  
  
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
