PyQt5 – Setting line edit to the ComboBox

In this article we will see how we can set line edit to the combo box, line edit is the widget in pyqt5. A line edit allows the user to enter and edit a single line of plain text with a useful collection of editing functions, including undo and redo, cut and paste, and drag and drop.

In order to add line edit to the combo box we use setLineEdit method, with this we can use line edit widget to enter the item in combo box even if it non editable state.

Syntax : combo_box.setLineEdit(line_edit)

Argument : It takes QLineEdit object as argument

Action performed : This will add line edit to the combo box
