In this article, we will see how to set message to status bar of window. A status bar is a graphical control element which poses an information area typically found at the window’s bottom. It can be divided into sections to group information. Its job is primarily to display information about the current state of its window. In order to do this we will use showMessage() method.
Syntax : self.statusBar().showMessage(message) Argument : It takes string as argument. Action performed : It sets the message to status bar.
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")
        # 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 :5px solid blue;")
        # resizing label
        self.label_1.resize(80, 100)
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
