PyQt5 – Set minimum length for width/height of Status Bar

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 :

self.statusBar().setMinimumWidth(width)
self.statusBar().setMinimumHeight(height)

Argument :
Both take integer as argument.

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

        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())
