PyQt5 – Set tool tip to Status Bar

In this article we will see how we can set tool tip to a status bar. The tooltip or infotip or a hint is a common graphical user interface element. It is used in conjunction with a cursor, usually a pointer. The user hovers the pointer over an item, without clicking it, and a tooltip may appear—a small “hover box” with information about the item being hovered over.

In order to set this we will use setToolTip method with status bar object.

Syntax : self.statusBar().setToolTip(data)

Argument : It takes string as argument.

Action performed : It sets tool tip to status bar.

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