PyQt5 QComboBox – Checking if mouse tracking is activated or not
  • Last Updated : 10 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can check if the mouse tracking of the combo box is activated or not, combo box receive signal about the mouse when any button is pressed but after mouse tracking it will receive all the signals about the mouse even if any button is not pressed. By default this property is False although we can activate mouse tracking with the help of setMouseTracking method.

In order to do this we use hasMouseTracking method

Syntax : combo_box.hasMouseTracking()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns bool

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, 600, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a check-able combo box object
        self.combo_box = QComboBox(self)
        # setting geometry of combo box
        self.combo_box.setGeometry(200, 150, 100, 30)
        # geek list
        geek_list = ["Sayian", "Super Sayian", "Super Sayian 2", "Super Sayian B"]
        # adding list of items to combo box
        # setting mouse tracking
        # setting stylesheet of the combo box
        self.combo_box.setStyleSheet("border : 1px solid red;")
        # creating label
        label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(200, 200, 200, 40)
        # getting mouse tracking
        tracking = self.combo_box.hasMouseTracking()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Mouse tracking enabled ? : " + str(tracking))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
