In this article we will see how to set tool tip duration. We can can tool tip using setToolTip method with the status bar object but by default, tool tip will not disappear automatically after some time. We can set this disappearing time by using setToolTipDuration method with status bar object.

Syntax : self.statusBar().setToolTipDuration(ms)

Argument : It take integer as argument which represent milliseconds

Action performed : It set time duration to tool tip of status bar.

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 tool tip for status bar
        self.statusBar().setToolTip("Hello ! from status bar")
        # setting tool tip duration
        # 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
