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  border and padding with different sizes
        self.statusBar().setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black;")
        # setting maximum size
        self.statusBar().setMaximumSize(400, 100)
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel("status bar", self)
        # moving position

        # setting up the border
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border :1px solid blue;")
