In this article we will see how we can get the status tip of the spin box. Status tip is basically text set by the developer to give the tip(information) about the spin box state to other developers. For example we can set status tip to “high value” when its value is greater than 90. We can add status tip to the spin box with the help of setStatusTip method.

In order to do this we use statusTip method with the spin box object.

Syntax : spin_box.statusTip()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns string

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, 600, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
        # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating spin box
        self.spin = QSpinBox(self)
  
        # setting geometry to spin box
        self.spin.setGeometry(100, 100, 250, 40)
  
        # setting range to the spin box
        self.spin.setRange(1, 999999)
  
        # setting prefix to spin
        self.spin.setPrefix("PREFIX ")
  
        # setting suffix to spin
        self.spin.setSuffix(" SUFFIX")
  
        # setting status tip to the spin box
        self.spin.setStatusTip("Small Value")
  
        # creating a label
        self.label = QLabel(self)
  
        # making label multi line
        self.label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # setting label geometry
        self.label.setGeometry(100, 200, 250, 60)
  
        # getting status tip
        value = self.spin.statusTip()
  
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Status Tip : " + str(value))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
