PyQt5 – Set color to a status bar

  • Last Updated : 26 Mar, 2020

In this article, we will see how to set a color to a status bar. By default, there is no color to a status bar but PyQt5 provides us a feature to edit the color of status bar. We can do this by using setStyleSheet() method.

self.statusBar().setStyleSheet(“background-color : yellow”)

Argument : It takes string as argument.

Action performed : It sets color to status bar.


from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # set the title
        # setting  the geometry of window
        self.setGeometry(60, 60, 600, 400)
        # setting status bar message
        self.statusBar().showMessage("This is status bar")
        # setting color to status bar
        self.statusBar().setStyleSheet("background-color : pink")
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel("Status bar", self)
        # moving position
        self.label_1.move(100, 100)
        # setting up the border
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border :1px solid blue;")
        # resizing label
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
