PyQt5 – Set fixed length for width/height of Status Bar
  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

When window is resized status bar also get resized although we can set a fix size of status bar by using setFixedSize method with object of status bar. In this article we will see how we can only fix the length of wither width or height i.e other side would be variable.

In order to fix length of width we use setFixedWidth with object of status bar and to fix length of height we use setFixedHeight with object of status bar.

Syntax :

self.statusBar().setFixedHeight(height)
self.statusBar().setFixedWidth(width)

Argument : Both methods take integer as argument.

Action performed :
setFixedHeight fix the height of status bar.
setFixedWidth fix the width of status bar.

        # setting fixed width
        self.statusBar().setFixedHeight(100)
  
        # 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
