Follow-up from this question: Including hyperlink in QMessageBar

Is it possible to stop the QMessageBar from closing when the hyperlink is clicked?

A simple messagebar snippet I am using:

iface.messageBar().pushMessage("", '<a href="https://www.w3schools.com/">Visit W3Schools.com!</a>', Qgis.Info, 0)

Instead of displaying a hyperlink in the QgsMessageBar, I use the method pushWidget to display a QLabel that has a hyperlink, so when you click, the message bar won't close.

Here's the code :

# create the Qt Label
link_label = QLabel(
    '<a href="https://gis.stackexchange.com/a/438269/93097">'
    "Visit and vote for this awesome answer 😎!</a>"
# it can now open your favorite internet browser
# display the iface messagebar with the label


  • This works great! Also nice touch to your answer :-)
