QLineEdit : It allows the user to enter and edit a single line of plain text with a useful collection of editing functions, including undo and redo, cut and paste, and drag and drop. It is the basic widget in PyQt5 to receive keyboard input, input can be text, numbers or even symbol as well. Below is how the line edit look like

Example :
We will create a line edit and a label and when user enter text in it and when enter key is pressed, the label will display the entered text.

Below is the implementation

# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
from PyQt5 import QtCore, QtGui
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 500, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a QLineEdit object
        line_edit = QLineEdit("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting geometry
        line_edit.setGeometry(80, 80, 150, 40)
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GfG", self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(80, 150, 120, 60)
        # setting word wrap property of label
        # adding action to the line edit when enter key is pressed
        line_edit.returnPressed.connect(lambda: do_action())
        # method to do action
        def do_action():
            # getting text from the line edit
            value = line_edit.text()
            # setting text to the label
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
