PyQt5 QColorDialog – Getting Font
  • Last Updated : 24 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the font of QColorDialog. Font is the style i.e properties of the text present in the color dialog. We use setFont method to set the font to the dialog.

Note : Increasing size of font will increase the size of the dialog box although dialog size is fixed

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

Syntax : dialog.font()

Argument : It takes no argument



Return : It returns QFont 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 custom colors
        dialog.setCustomColor(1, Qt.red)
        dialog.setCustomColor(2, Qt.green)
        dialog.setCustomColor(3, Qt.yellow)
        dialog.setCustomColor(4, Qt.blue)
  
        # font
        font = QFont('Times', 12)
  
        # setting font to the dialog
        dialog.setFont(font)
  
        # creating label
        label = QLabel("Geeks for Geeks", self)
  
        label.setAlignment(Qt.AlignCenter)
  
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # setting stylesheet of the label
        label.setStyleSheet("QLabel"
                            "{"
                            "border : 5px solid black;"
                            "}")
  
  
        # getting the custom color
        color = dialog.customColor(4)
  
        # 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)
  
        layout = dialog.layout()
  
        layout.addWidget(label)
  
        dialog.setLayout(layout)
  
        # getting font
        value = dialog.font()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Font : " + str(value))
  
        dialog.exec_()
  
        self.deleteLater()
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
