PyQt5 – Changing size of Indicator in Check Box
  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

In this article we will see how to change the size of indicator. Indicator is the part of check box although if we change the size of check box with the help of resize method or setGeometry method, but it will change the size of check box but not the indicator.

In order to change the size of indicator we have to change the height and width in the style sheet of the indicator which is used with check box object. Below is the style sheet code.

QCheckBox::indicator
{
width : 40px;
height : 40px;
}

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 the check-box
        checkbox = QCheckBox('Geek ?', self)
  
        # setting geometry of check box
        checkbox.setGeometry(200, 150, 100, 80)
  
        # setting stylesheet
        # changing width and height of indicator
        checkbox.setStyleSheet("QCheckBox::indicator"
                               "{"
                               "width :40px;"
                               "height : 40px;"
                               "}")
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
