Setting and accessing name of a Label – PyQt5

  • Last Updated : 26 Mar, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set and access the description of the label.
A label is a graphical control element which displays text on a form. It is usually a static control; having no interactivity. A label is generally used to identify a nearby text box or other widget. Description of label is the details of the label, setting description helps in better understanding of the details for back-end purposes.

To set the Description –

Syntax : label.setAccessibleDescription(details)
Argument : It takes string as argument.
Return : No return value.

To access the Description –

Syntax : label.accessibleDescription()
Argument : It takes no argument.
Return : It returns string.

Code :

# importing the required libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
from PyQt5 import QtCore
from PyQt5 import QtGui
import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # set the title
        # setting  the geometry of window
        self.setGeometry(0, 0, 400, 300)
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel("Label", self)
        # moving position
        self.label_1.move(100, 100)
        # setting up border
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border: 1px solid black;")
        # setting up the description of label_1
                      "This is description of label")
        # getting description of label_1
        info = self.label_1.accessibleDescription()
        # new label to display info
        self.label_2 = QLabel(info, self)
        self.label_2.move(100, 130)
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
