In this article we will see how we can insert action to the QCommandLinkButton. By default command link buttons has an empty action list i.e there is no element in action list although by adding action to the menu of command link button we can add elements in action list. We use addAction and addActions method for adding single and multiple action at a same time.

Inserting action means to adding action at the specific position in the action list for this we use insertAction and insertActions method for inserting single and multiple actions.

In order to do this we use insertAction and insertActions method with the command link button object

Syntax : button.insertAction(before, action) and button.addActions(before, action_list)

Argument : First method takes two QAction object and second method take QAction as a list of QAction as argument

Return : They return None

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)
        # QActions
        a = QAction("Next Geeks", self)
        b = QAction("Previous Geeks", self)
        # QMenu
        menu = QMenu()
        # adding actions to menu
        menu.addActions([a, b])
        # QAction
        c = QAction("Middle", self)
        # inserting action
        menu.insertAction(b, c)
        # setting menu to the button
        # creating QAction object
        q = QAction("Action")
        # action to the button
        # creating label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting label geometry
        label.setGeometry(50, 200, 300, 80)
        # making label multiline
        # getting action list
        value = cl_button.actions()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Actions List : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
