In this article we will see how to add padding to status bar. Unlike main window which don’t have padding, status bar allows us to set padding to it. Padding is basically the space between border and content of status bar, we can set this size by using setStyleSheet method with status bar object.

Note : In status bar, padding is available for top and bottom only, it is not available for left or right edge.

Syntax : self.statusBar().setStyleSheet(“padding : 15px;”)

Argument : It takes string as argument.

Action performed : It set padding to the status bar

Code :

from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # set the title
        # setting  the geometry of window
        self.setGeometry(60, 60, 600, 400)
        # setting status bar message
        self.statusBar().showMessage("This is status bar")
        # setting  border and padding 
        self.statusBar().setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black; 
                                        padding: 15px;")
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel("status bar", self)
        # moving position
        self.label_1.move(100, 100)
        # setting up the border
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border :1px solid blue;")
        # resizing label
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
