PyQt5 – Setting and accessing description of a Status Bar

  • Last Updated : 26 Mar, 2020

In this article, we will see how to set and access the description of the Status Bar. In order to set description we use statusBar().setAccessibleDescription() method and for accessing we use self.statusBar().accessibleDescription() method.

Description of Status Bar is the details of the Status Bar and setting description helps in better understandability of the details for back-end purposes.

Syntax :

Argument :
self.statusBar().setAccessibleDescription(details) takes string as argument.
self.statusBar().accessibleDescription() takes no argument.

Return :
self.statusBar().setAccessibleDescription(details) returns no value.
self.statusBar().accessibleDescription() returns string.


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 to status bar
        self.statusBar().setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black;")
        # setting description to status bar
                 "this is description of status bar")
        # creating a label widget to show deciption
        self.label_1 = QLabel( self)
        # moving position
        self.label_1.move(100, 100)
        # setting up the border
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border :1px solid blue;")
        # accessing the description
        data = self.statusBar().accessibleDescription()
        # setting text to label
        # resizing label
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
