  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set the tool tip duration to the combo box. Tool tip is basically a tip occur when mouse hover over the combo box widget. In order to set the tool tip to the combo box we use setToolTip method.

Note : Tool tip get only visible when mouse hover over the combo box not on the drop down view

In order to set the tool tip duration we use setToolTipDuration method.

Syntax : combo_box.setToolTipDuration(n)

Argument : It takes integer as argument i.e milliseconds

Return : None

Below is the implementation

# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
from PyQt5 import QtCore, QtGui
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a combo box widget
        self.combo_box = QComboBox(self)
        # setting geometry of combo box
        self.combo_box.setGeometry(200, 150, 150, 30)
        # geek list
        geek_list = ["Sayian", "Super Sayian"]
        # making it editable
        # adding list of items to combo box
        # tool tip
        tip = "Sayian Tip"
        # setting tool tip to the combo box
        # setting duration to the tool tip
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
