PyQt5 | Setting visible priority to push button

In this article we will see how to set visible priority to the push button. When we create two buttons a same position the button which was created at the end will cover the old button, but with the help of setting priority to the buttons we can manage which button should be on top and which should be below.

For example if we create two buttons at same position they look like this

We can see that only second button is visible, although we can make second button translucent to see first button but still first button will not be clickable, but if we set lower priority i.e making it to a low window to the second button they will look like this.

Syntax : button.lower()

Argument : It takes no argument.

Action performed : It sets the button to lower window.

Code :





# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
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 push button
        button1 = QPushButton("First", self)
        # setting geometry of button
        button1.setGeometry(200, 150, 100, 40)
        # adding action to a button
        # creating a push button
        button2 = QPushButton("Second", self)
        # setting geometry of button
        button2.setGeometry(210, 160, 100, 40)
        # adding action to a button
        # make it in lower the window
    # action method
    def clickme(self):
        # printing pressed
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
