PyQt5 – Gradient color Bar of Progress Bar

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 :



QProgressBar::chunk 
{
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.
