In this article, we will see how we can get graphic effect of the QScrollBar. QScrollBar is a control that enables the user to access parts of a document that is larger than the widget used to display it. Slider is the scroll-able object inside the bar. The setGraphicsEffect function is for setting the scroll bar’s graphics effect. Sets effect as the widget’s effect. If there already is an effect installed on the scroll bar, QWidget will delete the existing effect before installing the new effect. It can be set with the help of setGraphicsEffect method.

In order to do this we will use graphicsEffect method with the scroll bar object. Syntax : scroll.graphicsEffect() Argument : It takes no argument Return : It returns QGraphicsEffect 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):
        # 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):
        scroll = QScrollBar(self)
        # setting geometry of the scroll bar
        scroll.setGeometry(100, 50, 30, 200)
        # making its background color to green
        scroll.setStyleSheet("background : lightgrey;")
        # QGraphicsEffect
        graphic = QGraphicsBlurEffect(self)
        # setting graphic effect to the scroll bar
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(200, 100, 300, 80)
        # making label multi line
        # getting value changed signal
        scroll.valueChanged.connect(lambda: do_action())
        # method called when signal is emitted
        def do_action():
            # setting text to the label
            label.setText("Current Value : " + str(scroll.value()))
        # getting graphic effect of scroll bar
        value = scroll.graphicsEffect()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Graphic Effect : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
