  • Last Updated : 29 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get menu of the QCommandLinkButton. Menu is basically an extra feature of command link button which allows its to have a drop down menu from which user can click on the menu items. We can set the menu to the command link button with the help of setMenu method, below is how the command link button looks like

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

Syntax : button.menu()

Argument : It takes no argument



Return : It return QMenu 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):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 500, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
  
    # 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)
  
        # QActions
        a = QAction("Next Geeks", self)
        b = QAction("Previous Geeks", self)
  
        # QMenu
        menu = QMenu()
  
        # adding actions to menu
        menu.addAction(a)
        menu.addAction(b)
  
        # setting menu to the button
        cl_button.setMenu(menu)
  
        # creating label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting label geometry
        label.setGeometry(50, 200, 200, 40)
  
        # making label multiline
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting menu
        value = cl_button.menu()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Menu : " + str(value))
  
  
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
