PyQt5 – Change size of Push Button
  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

In this article we will see how to change the size of push button. There are basically two ways in order to change the size of button i.e using resize method and setGeometry method.
The main difference between them is resize method will only resize the push button. on the other hand setGeometry method will change the size and also set the position of the push button.

Method #1:

Syntax : button.setGeometry(left, top, width, height)

Argument : It takes four integer as argument, first two are the position and second two are the size.

Action performed : It sets the position and the size of push button.



Code :




# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
import sys
  
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating a push button
        button = QPushButton("CLICK", self)
  
        # setting geometry of button
        button.setGeometry(200, 150, 100, 40)
  
  
        # adding action to a button
        button.clicked.connect(self.clickme)
  
  
    # action method
    def clickme(self):
  
        # printing pressed
        print("pressed")
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())

Output :

 

Method #2:

Syntax : button.resize(width, height)

Argument : It takes two integer as argument i.e width and height.

Action performed : It sets the size of push button

Code :




# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
import sys
  
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating a push button
        button = QPushButton("CLICK", self)
  
        # setting size of button
        button.resize(150, 50)
  
  
        # adding action to a button
        button.clicked.connect(self.clickme)
  
  
    # action method
    def clickme(self):
  
        # printing pressed
        print("pressed")
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
