In this article we will see how we can set window opacity property to 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. This property holds the level of opacity for the window. The valid range of opacity is from 1.0 (completely opaque) to 0.0 (completely transparent). Note : On X11 you need to have a composite manager running, and the X11 specific _NET_WM_WINDOW_OPACITY atom needs to be supported by the window manager you are using.
In order to do this we will use setWindowOpacity method with the scroll bar object. Syntax : scroll.setWindowOpacity(n) Argument : It takes float as argument Return : It returns 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):
        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):
  
        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;")
  
        # setting window opacity property
        scroll.setWindowOpacity(1.0)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeesforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(200, 100, 300, 80)
  
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # 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()))
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
