PyQt5 QColorDialog – How to execute it ?

In this article we will see how we can execute the QColorDialog widget, executing means to opening it. There are basically two ways of opening the QColorDialog one is to call the getColor method, this is a static way that will open the new instance of QColorDialog every time, this way is useful for quick uses but not preferred. The second way is by executing it, how the QColorDialog looks like.

In order to do this we use exec_() method with the QColorDialog object

Syntax : dialog.exec_()

Argument : It takes no argument



Action Performed : It opens the QColorDialog widget

        # setting color to the graphic
        graphic.setColor(color)
  
        # setting graphic to the label
        label.setGraphicsEffect(graphic)

App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
