Return : It returns string

Below is the example style sheet code

border : 2px solid black;

        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 500, 400)
        # calling method

    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a QListWidget

        # setting geometry to it
        list_widget.setGeometry(50, 70, 150, 80)
        # list widget items

        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(230, 80, 280, 80)
        # making label multi line
        # getting style sheet
        value = list_widget.styleSheet()
        # setting text to the label

App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
