PyQt5 – Gradient color Bar of Progress Bar
  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

In this article we will see how we can create the gradient color to bar of process bar.

Gradient Color : In computer graphics, a color gradient specifies a range of position-dependent colors, usually used to fill a region. For example, many window managers allow the screen background to be specified as a gradient. The colors produced by a gradient vary continuously with position, producing smooth color transitions.

Below is how normal bar of progress bar looks vs how gradient color bar of progress bar looks:

Style sheet code :

background: QLinearGradient( x1: 0, y1: 0,
                             x2: 1, y2: 0, 
                            stop: 0 #000fff,
                            stop: 1 #ff000f );

This style sheet is used with the help of setStyleSheet method.

# importing libraries

        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
        # calling method

    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating progress bar
        bar = QProgressBar(self)
        # setting geometry to progress bar
        bar.setGeometry(200, 150, 200, 30)
        # set value to progress bar
        # setting gradient color to bar
        bar.setStyleSheet("QProgressBar::chunk "
                          "background: QLinearGradient( x1: 0, y1: 0
                                                        x2: 1, y2: 0
                                                    stop: 0 # 00ffff, 
                                                   stop: 1 # ff000f );"
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
