In this article we will see how to set the indicator to the right of check box. Check box basically have two components first is indicator and other is the label by default indicator is at the left hand side. In order to make the indicator at the right hand side we have to change its layout direction from left to right side.

In order to do this we will use setLayoutDirection method.

Syntax : checkbox.setLayoutDirection(Qt.RightToLeft)

Argument : It takes Qt object as argument.

Action performed : It will change the layout of check box.

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, 30)
  
        # changing position of indicator
        checkbox.setLayoutDirection(Qt.RightToLeft)
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
