PyQt5 – Set maximum size of status bar
  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

We know by default when we resize the window, status bar also get resized. In this article we will see how to set the maximum size of the status bar i.e when we extend the window status bar should not extend beyond this size.

In order to do this we will use setMaximumSize method with status bar object.

Syntax : self.statusBar().setMaximumSize(width, height)

Argument : It takes two argument, both integer which refers width and height.

Action performed : It sets the maximum size 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  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
        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())
