PyQt5 ComboBox – Different border size when it is in OFF state when mouse hover it
  • Last Updated : 06 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set different border width to the combo box when combo box is in the off state and mouse hover over it, when we set border to the combo box it is of same width for all the sides although we can change width of each sides respectively, border with different width will only appear when combo box is off state and cursor is on the combo box else it will show normal border. Off state refer to when item view is not open.

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

QComboBox::!on:hover
{
border : solid black;
border-width-top : 1px;
border-width-right : 5px;
border-width-bottom : 2px;
border-width-left : 10px;
}

Code 2

QComboBox::!on:hover
{
border : solid black;
border-width : 1px 5px 2px 10px;
}

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

Below is the implementation
