PyQt5 QCommandLinkButton – Setting Auto Repeat Property
  • Last Updated : 30 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set the auto repeat property of the QCommandLinkButton. If auto repeat property is enabled, then 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. The initial delay and the repetition interval are defined in milliseconds by autoRepeatDelay and autoRepeatInterval method.

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

Syntax : button.setAutoRepeat(True)

Argument : It takes bool as argument

Return : It return None



Below is the implementation
