PyQt5 – Change text in Radio Button on click

In this article we will see how to change the text in the radio button. When we create a radio button we set some text or even we can leave it blank, radio button is created with the help of QRadioButton class.

We will create a radio button and a push button such that when push button is pressed, radio button text should get changed.

In order to do so we have to do the following –

  • Create a radio button.
  • Create a push button.
  • Connect a method associated with push button, such that when push button get pressed this method should get called.
  • In the method change the radio button content with the help of setText method.

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 radio button
        self.button1 = QRadioButton("Button1", self)
        # setting geometry of radio button
        self.button1.setGeometry(200, 150, 100, 40)
        # creating push button
        self.push = QPushButton("Change the text ", self)
        # setting geometry of push button
        self.push.setGeometry(200, 200, 100, 40)
        # connect push button to method
    # creating changeName method
    def changeName(self):
        # setting new text to radio button
        self.button1.setText("New Name")
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
