PySide2 – Create Tooltip
  • Last Updated : 29 Aug, 2020

In this article, we are going to learn how to create a tooltip. A tooltip is often used to specify extra information about something when the user moves the mouse pointer over an element. In order to make it, we use setToolTip() function which is defined in PySide2.QtWidgets. 

Steps to create tooltip:

1. Import PySide2 Widgets and Gui modules in your code
2. Create window with title and font setting
3. Set tooltip ‘Our Main Window’ to entire window
4. Set icons in two states active and disable with tooltip as “Active Icon” and “Disable Icon” respectively.

# import system module
import sys
# import QtWidget Modules
from PySide2.QtWidgets import QApplication, QWidget, QLabel, QToolTip
# import QtGui modules
from PySide2.QtGui import QIcon, QPixmap, QFont
class Window(QWidget):
    def __init__(self):
        # set window title
        self.setWindowTitle("GeeksforGeeks - ToolTip")
        # set window geometry 
        self.setGeometry(300, 300, 500, 400)
        # set tooltip font and font type
        QToolTip.setFont(QFont("Decorative", 30, QFont.Bold))
        # set tooltip
        self.setToolTip('Our Main Window')
    def setIconModes(self):
        # set icon 
        icon1 = QIcon("geeksforgeeks.png")
        # set label 
        label1 = QLabel('Sample', self)
        # set image in Active state
        pixmap1 = icon1.pixmap(100, 100, QIcon.Active, QIcon.On)
        # set Pixmap
        # set tooltip text
        label1.setToolTip("Active Icon")
        # set icon 
        icon2 = QIcon("geeksforgeeks.png")
        # set label
        label2 = QLabel('Sample', self)
        # set image in Disabled state
        pixmap2 = icon2.pixmap(100, 100, QIcon.Disabled, QIcon.Off)
        # set P
        label2.move(100, 0)
        label2.setToolTip("Disable Icon")
myApp = QApplication(sys.argv)
window = Window()
