PyQt5 window

You can create a PyQT5 window using the code below:

import sys
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import QApplication, QWidget
from PyQt5.QtGui import QIcon

class App(QWidget):

def __init__(self):
self.title = 'PyQt5 simple window -'
self.left = 10 = 10
self.width = 640
self.height = 480

def initUI(self):
self.setGeometry(self.left,, self.width, self.height)

if __name__ == '__main__':
app = QApplication(sys.argv)
ex = App()

We set the window size using the setGeometry(left,top,width,height) method. The window title is set using setWindowTitle(title). Finally show() is called to display the window.
