import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # set the title
        # set the geometry
        self.setGeometry(0, 0, 300, 300)
        # creating a button widget
        self.widget = QPushButton('Widget', self)
        # setting up the tooltip
        self.widget.setToolTip("This is a button widget !")
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
