In this article we will see how we can get the selected color of the QColorDialog widget. Selected color is the color that the user selected by clicking the OK or equivalent button.

Note : This color is not always the same as the color held by the currentColor property since the user can choose different colors before finally selecting the one to use.

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

Syntax : dialog.selectedColor()

Argument : It takes no argument

Returns : 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):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 500, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a QColorDialog object
        dialog = QColorDialog(self)
        # executing the dialog
        # creating label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 100, 300, 80)
        # making label multi line
        # setting stylesheet of the label
                            "border : 5px solid black;"
        # getting the selected color
        value = dialog.selectedColor()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Selected Color : " + str(value))
        color = value
        # setting graphic effect to the label
        graphic = QGraphicsColorizeEffect(self)
        # setting color to the graphic
        # setting graphic to the label
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
