google chrome – Embedd selenium browser in pyqt5 application

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.chrome.service import Service
from webdriver_manager.chrome import ChromeDriverManager
from selenium.webdriver.common.by import By

chrome_options = webdriver.ChromeOptions()
s=Service(ChromeDriverManager().install())
driver = webdriver.Chrome(service=s,options=chrome_options,service_log_path="NUL")
#driver.get("http://www.stackoverflow.com")
original_window = driver.current_window_handle
print(original_window)

The output of the following code is:

  1. Open instantly google chrom in url: www.stackoverflow.com
  2. Prints the following in the console:


====== WebDriver manager ======

CDwindow-1B93BAC67BF5856846B6207B11EF4F1E

where CDwindow-1B93BAC67BF5856846B6207B11EF4F1E is the driver.current_window_handle value.

So i have problem determine the Window id of selenium browser.

If this value was an int number then i could use it as input in fromWinId method of QWindow qt5 class.

So how can import selenium browser instead of QWebEngine and QWebKit in a pyqt5 application?

Please answer for an Arch-Linux based platform support (so win32gui based answer would not be accepted).

Edit: Possible solution:

I realized that pywin32 library is available in msys2 platform. So i make something like:

from PyQt5 import QtCore, QtGui, QtWidgets
import win32gui
import win32con
import winxpgui
import win32api
from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.chrome.service import Service
from webdriver_manager.chrome import ChromeDriverManager
from selenium.webdriver.chrome.options import Options
from selenium.webdriver.common.by import By
import time
import ctypes
user32 = ctypes.windll.user32
width,height = user32.GetSystemMetrics(0), user32.GetSystemMetrics(1)

    MainWindow = QtWidgets.QMainWindow()
    ui = Ui_MainWindow()
    ui.setupUi(MainWindow)
    MainWindow.show()
    sys.exit(app.exec_())

Output:

The only problem with the up code is that: I don’t want the full screen site to be visible until the site embedded to the QMainWindow. Any possible solution?
