In this article we will see how to create dotted border to an Push Button. Below is how normal button vs dotted border looks like.

In order to do this we have to change the border style from solid to dotted this can be done using style sheet.

Syntax : button.setStyleSheet(“border-style : dotted;”)

Argument : It takes string as argument.

Action performed : It will set border style to dotted.

import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
        # calling method
