  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

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.

Code :




# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
import sys
  
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating a push button
        button = QPushButton("CLICK", self)
  
        # setting geometry of button
        button.setGeometry(200, 150, 100, 40)
  
        # adding action to a button
        button.clicked.connect(self.clickme)
  
        # setting up border and border style to dotted
        button.setStyleSheet("border : 2px black; 
                              border-style : solid")
  
  
    # action method
    def clickme(self):
  
        # printing pressed
        print("pressed")
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
