PyQt5 – Dotted border of Radio Button
  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

In this article we will see how to create dotted border to the radio button. By default there is no border associated with the radio button although we can create border to it. Also we can can edit the style sheet to make dotted border.

Below is the representation of normal bordered radio button vs dotted bordered radio button.

In order to do this we have to change the style sheet associated with the radio button.

QRadioButton
{
border : 2px green;
border-style :dotted;
}

Below is the implementation.




# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import *
from PyQt5 import QtCore, QtGui
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 radio button
        radio_button = QRadioButton(self)
  
        # setting geometry of radio button
        radio_button.setGeometry(200, 150, 120, 40)
  
        # setting text to radio button
        radio_button.setText("Radio Button")
  
        # setting style sheet to radio button
        # setting border width and color
        # setting border style to dotted
        radio_button.setStyleSheet("QRadioButton"
                                   "{"
                                   "border : 2px green;"
                                   "border-style : dotted;"
                                   "}")
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
