In this article, we will see how we can get the auto repeat interval time of the QCommandLinkButton.It defines the length of the auto-repetition interval in milliseconds when auto repeat property is enabled. In auto repeat property the pressed, released and clicked signals are emitted at regular intervals when the command link button is down. Auto repeat property is off by default although it can be enabled with the help of setAutoRepeat method. Interval time can be set with the help of setAutoRepeatDelay method.

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

Syntax : button.autoRepeatDelay()
Argument : It takes no argument
Return : It return integer 

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 auto repeat
        # setting interval time 500 milliseconds
        # creating label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting label geometry
        label.setGeometry(50, 100, 200, 40)
        # getting auto repeat interval
        value = cl_button.autoRepeatInterval()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Auto Repeat Interval (ms) : " + str(value))
        # counter
        self.counter = 0
        # adding action to the button
        cl_button.clicked.connect(lambda: update_label())
        # method for updating label text
        def update_label():
            # setting label text
            # incrementing the counter
            self.counter += 1
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
