PyQt5 QColorDialog – Getting Current Color
  • Last Updated : 21 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the current color of the QColorDialog widget. User can select the color with the mouse or using the spin boxes present there but the initial color always remain white in order to change this we can set the current of the color dialog before executing it. Current color is selected with the help of setCurrentColor method.

In order to do this we use currentColor method with the QColorDialog object

Syntax : dialog.currentColor()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns QColor object



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, 500, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
  
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating a QColorDialog object
        dialog = QColorDialog(self)
  
        # setting current color
        dialog.setCurrentColor(Qt.red)
  
        # executing the dialog
        dialog.exec_()
  
  
        # creating label 
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 100, 300, 80)
  
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # setting stylesheet of the label
        label.setStyleSheet("QLabel"
                            "{"
                            "border : 5px solid black;"
                            "}")
  
        color = Qt.darkBlue
  
        # setting graphic effect to the label
        graphic = QGraphicsColorizeEffect(self)
  
        # setting color to the graphic
        graphic.setColor(color)
  
        # setting graphic to the label
        label.setGraphicsEffect(graphic)
  
        # getting the current color
        value = dialog.currentColor()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Color : " + str(value))
  
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
