In this article, we will see how we can add different padding size at different edges. Below is a image of label with normal padding and a label with different padding size at different edge. In order to do this we will use setStyleSheet() method and describe padding length for each edge.
Syntax :
label.setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black;"
                    "padding-top : 20px;"
                    "padding-left:30px;"
                    "padding-right:10;"
                    "padding-bottom :5px;")
Argument : It takes string as argument. Action performed : It will add padding to respective edges with respective lengths.
Code :
# importing the required libraries
  
from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
import sys
  
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
  
        # set the title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python")
  
        # setting  the geometry of window
        self.setGeometry(60, 60, 600, 400)
  
  
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel("padding", self)
  
        # moving position
        self.label_1.move(100, 100)
  
        # setting up the border and padding
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black; 
                                              padding :15px")
  
        # resizing label
        self.label_1.adjustSize()
  
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_2 = QLabel("padding", self)
  
        # setting up the border 
        # and adding padding of different length to different edges
        self.label_2.setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black;"
                                   "padding-top : 20px;"
                                   "padding-left:30px;"
                                   "padding-right:10;"
                                   "padding-bottom :5px;")
  
        # moving position
        self.label_2.move(230, 200)
  
        # resizing the label
        self.label_2.adjustSize()
  
        # show all the widgets
        self.show()
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())

                    
Output : pyqt-padding-size-label
