When we create a window, by default, it is resizable but with the help of setFixedSize() method we can fix the size of window. But what if we want to resize the window up-to some extent; in order to do this, we have to set the maximum size of the window. We will use setMaximumSize() method.

Syntax : self.setMaximumSize(width, height)

Argument : It takes two argument both integer i.e width and height.

Action performed : It set the maximum size of window.

Code :




# importing the required libraries
  
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")
  
        width = 500
        height = 400
        # setting the maximum size
        self.setMaximumSize(width, height)
  
  
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel("Maximum size", self)
  
        # moving position
        self.label_1.move(0, 0)
  
        # setting up the border
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black;")
  
        # resizing label
        self.label_1.resize(120, 80)
  
        # 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())
