Python Qt5 - QColorDialog example.

Today I will show you how to use the QColorDialog and clipboard with PyQt5.
You can read documentation from the official website.
This example used a tray icon with actions for each type of code color.
The code of color is put into clipboard area and print on the shell.
I use two ways to get the code of color:
  • parse the result of currentColor depends by type of color codel;
  • get the code of color by a special function from QColorDialog;
To select the color I want to use is need to use the QColorDialog:

Let's see the source code:
from PyQt5.QtGui import *
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import *

# create the application
app = QApplication([])
app.setQuitOnLastWindowClosed(False)

# get the icon file
icon = QIcon("icon.png")

# create clipboard
clipboard = QApplication.clipboard()
# create dialog color
dialog = QColorDialog()

# create functions to get parsing color
def get_color_hex():
    if dialog.exec_():
        color = dialog.currentColor()
        clipboard.setText(color.name())
        print(clipboard.text())

def get_color_rgb():
    if dialog.exec_():
        color = dialog.currentColor()
        clipboard.setText("rgb(%d, %d, %d)" % (
            color.red(), color.green(), color.blue()
        ))
        print(clipboard.text())

def get_color_hsv():
    if dialog.exec_():
        color = dialog.currentColor()
        clipboard.setText("hsv(%d, %d, %d)" % (
            color.hue(), color.saturation(), color.value()
        ))
        print(clipboard.text())
# create function to use getCmyk 
def get_color_getCmyk():
    if dialog.exec_():
        color = dialog.currentColor()
        clipboard.setText("Cmyk(%d, %d, %d, %d, %d)" % (
            color.getCmyk()
        ))
        print(clipboard.text())


# create the tray icon application
tray = QSystemTrayIcon()
tray.setIcon(icon)
tray.setVisible(True)

# create the menu and add actions
menu = QMenu()
action1 = QAction("Hex")
action1.triggered.connect(get_color_hex)
menu.addAction(action1)

action2 = QAction("RGB")
action2.triggered.connect(get_color_rgb)
menu.addAction(action2)

action3 = QAction("HSV")
action3.triggered.connect(get_color_hsv)
menu.addAction(action3)

action4 = QAction("Cmyk")
action4.triggered.connect(get_color_getCmyk)
menu.addAction(action4)

action5 =QAction("Exit")
action5.triggered.connect(exit)
menu.addAction(action5)

# add the menu to the tray icon application
tray.setContextMenu(menu)

app.exec_()
