In this article we will see how we can get the object name of the QCommandLinkButton. Object name is given for searching the specific button inside the window programmatically, also object name can be used for setting stylesheet using object name. By default developer has not set any object name to the command link although we can set it any time with the help of setObjectName method.

In order to do this we use objectName method with the command link button object

Syntax : button.objectName()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It return string

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 command link button
        cl_button = QCommandLinkButton("Press", self)
        # setting geometry
        cl_button.setGeometry(250, 100, 200, 50)
        # setting object name
        cl_button.setObjectName("Geeks Next Button")
        # creating label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting label geometry
        label.setGeometry(50, 100, 200, 80)
        # making label multiline
        # getting object name
        value = cl_button.objectName()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Object Name : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
