In this article we will see how to set tool tip to a progress bar. Tool tip is basically tip showed up on screen when cursor hover upon the progress bar. Tool tip will basically used to tell the user about the percentage or how much time is left to complete, in order to set the tool tip we use setToolTip method.

Syntax : bar.setToolTip(text)

Argument : It takes string as argument.

Action performed : It will set tool tip to progress bar.

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 background color to window
        # self.setStyleSheet("background-color : yellow")
  
        # 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
        value = 70
        bar.setValue(value)
  
        # setting alignment to center
        bar.setAlignment(Qt.AlignCenter)
  
        # setting tool tip
        bar.setToolTip("Percentage is currently at " + str(value))
  
  
  
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
