PyQt5 – Set minimum length for width/height of Status Bar
  • Last Updated : 26 Mar, 2020

When we create a status bar, by default, the status bar size is resizable. Although we can use setMinimumSize() method with status bar to set the minimum size of the status bar but what if we want to set minimum length for width or height only.
In order to do, so we use setMinimumWidth() method with status bar to set minimum width and setMinimumHeight() method with status bar to set minimum height, when we use these method other length will be variable i.e there will be no minimum length to it, it can shrinks as much it can.

Syntax :


Argument :
Both take integer as argument.

Action performed :
setMinimumWidth() sets the minimum width.
setMinimumHeight() sets the minimum height.

Code :

from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import *
import sys
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
        self.statusBar().setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black;")
        # setting minimum Height of status bar
        # 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
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
