PyQt5 – Changing color of pressed Push Button
  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

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.




# 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):
        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 push button widget
        button = QPushButton("Button ", self)
  
        # setting geometry
        button.setGeometry(200, 100, 100, 40)
  
        # adding background color to button
        # and background color to pressed button
        button.setStyleSheet("QPushButton"
                             "{"
                             "background-color : lightblue;"
                             "}"
                             "QPushButton::pressed"
                             "{"
                             "background-color : red;"
                             "}"
                             )
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
