In this article we will see how we can set the minimum width of the plot window in the PyQtGraph module. PyQtGraph is a graphics and user interface library for Python that provides functionality commonly required in designing and science applications. Its primary goals are to provide fast, interactive graphics for displaying data (plots, video, etc.) and second is to provide tools to aid in rapid application development (for example, property trees such as used in Qt Designer).Plot windows consist of two main parts: the Plot Panel containing the actual plotted graphics and the Control Panel. By default the plot window is resizable user can resize it any time, by setting minimum width we can fix that user will not be able to decrease the width beyond the minimum width point.
We can create a plot window with the help of command given below
# creating a pyqtgraph plot window window = pg.plot()
In order to do this we use
setMinimumWidthmethod with the plot window object
Syntax : window.setMinimumWidth(width)
Argument : It takes integer as argument
Return : It returns None
Below is the implementation
When we try to decrease the size of the window, width did not shrink after the minimum point is reached
