While designing a Gui (Graphical User Interface) application, we mostly end up making lots of windows with each having status bar. For back-end coders it become tough to distinguish between the windows status bar. To overcome this need of settings name required, for examples among hundreds of status bar we can distinguish them by setting their names like some are “status -info” status bar, some are “status warning” status bar just like this.

In order to set name of status bar we use statusBar().setAccessibleName() method and to access this name we use statusBar().accessibleName() method.

Syntax :


Argument :
statusBar().setAccessibleName() takes string as argument.
statusBar().accessibleName() takes no argument.

Return :
statusBar().setAccessibleName() returns None.
statusBar().setAccessibleName() returns string.

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")
        # setting  border
        self.statusBar().setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black;")
        # setting name to a status bar
        self.statusBar().setAccessibleName("Status Bar")
        # creating a label widget
        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;")
        # getting name of status bar
        name = self.statusBar().accessibleName()
        # setting text to label
        self.label_1.setText("name = "+name)
        # resizing label
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
