Detailed Description

../../_images/windows-progressbar.png

A progress bar is used to give the user an indication of the progress of an operation and to reassure them that the application is still running.

The progress bar uses the concept of steps . You set it up by specifying the minimum and maximum possible step values, and it will display the percentage of steps that have been completed when you later give it the current step value. The percentage is calculated by dividing the progress ( value() - minimum() ) divided by maximum() - minimum() .

You can specify the minimum and maximum number of steps with setMinimum() and setMaximum . The current number of steps is set with setValue() . The progress bar can be rewound to the beginning with reset() .

If minimum and maximum both are set to 0, the bar shows a busy indicator instead of a percentage of steps. This is useful, for example, when using QNetworkAccessManager to download items when they are unable to determine the size of the item being downloaded.

class PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar([parent=None])

Constructs a progress bar with the given parent .

By default, the minimum step value is set to 0, and the maximum to 100.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.Direction

Specifies the reading direction of the text for vertical progress bars.

Constant

Description

QProgressBar.TopToBottom

The text is rotated 90 degrees clockwise.

QProgressBar.BottomToTop

The text is rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise.

Note that whether or not the text is drawn is dependent on the style. Currently CleanLooks and Plastique draw the text. Mac, Windows and WindowsVista style do not.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.initStyleOption(option)
Parameters

optionPySide2.QtWidgets.QStyleOptionProgressBar

Initialize option with the values from this QProgressBar . This method is useful for subclasses when they need a QStyleOptionProgressBar , but don’t want to fill in all the information themselves.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.invertedAppearance()
Return type

bool

This property holds whether or not a progress bar shows its progress inverted.

If this property is true , the progress bar grows in the other direction (e.g. from right to left). By default, the progress bar is not inverted.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.isTextVisible()
Return type

bool

This property holds whether the current completed percentage should be displayed.

This property may be ignored by the style (e.g., QMacStyle never draws the text).

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.maximum()
Return type

int

This property holds the progress bar’s maximum value.

When setting this property, the minimum is adjusted if necessary to ensure that the range remains valid. If the current value falls outside the new range, the progress bar is reset with reset() .

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.minimum()
Return type

int

This property holds the progress bar’s minimum value.

When setting this property, the maximum is adjusted if necessary to ensure that the range remains valid. If the current value falls outside the new range, the progress bar is reset with reset() .

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.orientation()
Return type

Orientation

This property holds the orientation of the progress bar.

The orientation must be Horizontal (the default) or Vertical .

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.reset()

Reset the progress bar. The progress bar “rewinds” and shows no progress.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.resetFormat()

This property holds the string used to generate the current text.

%p - is replaced by the percentage completed. %v - is replaced by the current value. %m - is replaced by the total number of steps.

The default value is “%p%”.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.setInvertedAppearance(invert)
Parameters

invert – bool

This property holds whether or not a progress bar shows its progress inverted.

If this property is true , the progress bar grows in the other direction (e.g. from right to left). By default, the progress bar is not inverted.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.setMaximum(maximum)
Parameters

maximum – int

This property holds the progress bar’s maximum value.

When setting this property, the minimum is adjusted if necessary to ensure that the range remains valid. If the current value falls outside the new range, the progress bar is reset with reset() .

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.setMinimum(minimum)
Parameters

minimum – int

This property holds the progress bar’s minimum value.

When setting this property, the maximum is adjusted if necessary to ensure that the range remains valid. If the current value falls outside the new range, the progress bar is reset with reset() .

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.setOrientation(arg__1)
Parameters

arg__1Orientation

This property holds the orientation of the progress bar.

The orientation must be Horizontal (the default) or Vertical .

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.setRange(minimum, maximum)
Parameters
  • minimum – int

  • maximum – int

Sets the progress bar’s minimum and maximum values to minimum and maximum respectively.

If maximum is smaller than minimum , minimum becomes the only legal value.

If the current value falls outside the new range, the progress bar is reset with reset() .

The QProgressBar can be set to undetermined state by using (0, 0).

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.setTextDirection(textDirection)
Parameters

textDirectionDirection

This property holds the reading direction of the text for vertical progress bars.

This property has no impact on horizontal progress bars. By default, the reading direction is TopToBottom .

orientation textVisible

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.setTextVisible(visible)
Parameters

visible – bool

This property holds whether the current completed percentage should be displayed.

This property may be ignored by the style (e.g., QMacStyle never draws the text).

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.setValue(value)
Parameters

value – int

This property holds the progress bar’s current value.

Attempting to change the current value to one outside the minimum-maximum range has no effect on the current value.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.text()
Return type

str

This property holds the descriptive text shown with the progress bar.

The text returned is the same as the text displayed in the center (or in some styles, to the left) of the progress bar.

The progress shown in the text may be smaller than the minimum value, indicating that the progress bar is in the “reset” state before any progress is set.

In the default implementation, the text either contains a percentage value that indicates the progress so far, or it is blank because the progress bar is in the reset state.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QProgressBar.textDirection()
Return type

Direction

This property holds the reading direction of the text for vertical progress bars.

This property has no impact on horizontal progress bars. By default, the reading direction is TopToBottom .
