In this article we will see how we can add border to the editable combo box when it is in off state and get pressed. OFF state is basically when the combo box list view is not open. This customized border appear only when combo box will be in off state and is editable and it is pressed Editable combo box can be created with the help of setEditable method. In order to do this we have to change the style sheet associated with the combo box, below is the style sheet code

border : 3px solid blue;

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, 600, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a combo box widget
        self.combo_box = QComboBox(self)
        # making it editable
        # setting geometry of combo box
        self.combo_box.setGeometry(200, 150, 150, 30)
        # geek list
        geek_list = ["Sayian", "Super Sayian", "Super Sayian 2", "Super Sayian B"]
        # adding list of items to combo box
        # editing style sheet code of combo box
        # adding border to the combo box when it is editable
        # and is in OFF state and get pressed
        self.combo_box.setStyleSheet("QComboBox::editable:! off:pressed"
                                     "border : 3px solid red;"
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
