In this article we will see how we can get the auto exclusive property of the QCommandLinkButton. If auto-exclusivity is enabled, checkable command link buttons that belong to the same parent widget behave as if they were part of the same exclusive button group. In an exclusive command link button group, only one button can be checked at any time; checking another button automatically unchecks the previously checked one. The property has no effect on buttons that belong to a button group. We can this  property with the help of setAutoExclusive method. In order to do this we use autoExclusive method with the command link button object

Syntax : button.autoExclusive() 

Argument : It takes no argument 

Return : It return 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, 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(200, 100, 150, 60)
        # making button checkable
        # making it auto exclusive
        # creating label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting label geometry
        label.setGeometry(50, 200, 300, 80)
        # making label multiline
        # getting auto exclusive property
        value = cl_button.autoExclusive()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Auto Exclusive  : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
