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.
Code:
from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
import sys
  
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
        # set the title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python")
  
        # 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
        self.label_1.adjustSize()
  
        # show all the widgets
        self.show()
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())

                    
Output : pyqt5-set-color-statusbar
