PyQt5 – Changing color of pressed Push Button

In this article we will see how to make a push button react when it is pressed. When button get releases it comes back to its original color, by default when button get clicked it becomes light blue color although we can change this color.

In order to change pressed button color we have to change the style sheet of pressed button, below is the style sheet code which is used with push button object.

QPushButton::clicked
{
background-color : red;
}

Below is the implementation.
