PyQt5 – Get the icon of desired item in ComboBox

In this article we will see how we can get the icon of the desired item of combo box. By default there is no icon set to the icon in the combo box although we can set icon to each item with the help of setItemIcon method.

In order to get the icon we will use itemIcon method

Syntax : combobox.itemIcon(index)

Argument : It takes integer as argument i.e index

Return : It will return QIcon object

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):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a combo box widget
        self.combo_box = QComboBox(self)
        # setting geometry of combo box
        self.combo_box.setGeometry(200, 150, 120, 30)
        # geek list
        geek_list = ["Geek", "Geeky Geek"]
        # adding list of items to combo box
        # creating editable combo box
        # index
        index = 0
        # adding icon to the given index
        self.combo_box.setItemIcon(index, QIcon('logo.png'))
        # setting icon size
        self.combo_box.setIconSize(QSize(10, 10))
        # getting the icon
        icon = self.combo_box.itemIcon(0)
        # creating label to
        label = QLabel("Icon = " + str(icon), self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(170, 100, 300, 30)
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
