PyQt5 – Background color for pressed check box in unchecked state
  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

In this article we will see how to set the color to the check box when it get pressed while in the unchecked state. By default no pressed color is set to the label part of the check box, although indicator by default has a light blue background color when it get pressed.

In order to add background color to the check box when pressed from unchecked state we have to edit the style sheet code which is used with check box object. Below is the style sheet code.

QCheckBox::unchecked:pressed
{
background-color : pink;
}

Below is the implementation.
