PyQt5 ComboBox – Different border color when editable and mouse hover

In this article we will see how we can set different border color to the combo box when it is editable and mouse hover over it, when we set border to the combo box it is of same color for all the sides although we can change color of each sides respectively. Colorful border will only appear combo box is editable and cursor is on the widget.

Note : Combo box can be made editable with the help of setEditable method

In order to do so we have to change the style sheet associated with the combo box below is the stylesheet code.
Code 1

QComboBox::editable:hover
{
border : 5px solid;
border-color-top : red;
border-color-right : green;
border-color-bottom : blue;
border-color-left : yellow;
}

Code 2

QComboBox::editable:hover
{
border : 5px solid;
border-color : red green blue yellow
}

Both code perform similar task just code 1 is extended version of code 2

Below is the implementation
