PyQt5 – Dotted border indicator in Radio button

In this article we will see how to make dotted border to the indicator of radio button. By default radio button indicator is circular and have solid black border.

In order to add dotted border to the indicator of radio button we have to change the style sheet code of indicator associated with the radio button, below is the style sheet code.

QRadioButton::indicator
{
border : 2px blue;
border-style : dotted;
}

Note : When we alter the indicator style sheet it losses its circular shape.

Below is the implementation
