PyQt5 – How to add icon to Radio Button ?

In this article we will see how to set logo to a radio button. By default there is no logo set to the radio button, although we can set icon to the radio button it is similar to setting icon to a main window but unlike main window, icon of radio button appear in between the indicator and the text part.

Below is how default radio button looks vs the the radio button with icon looks like.

In order to add icon to the radio button we have to do the following:

1. Create a radio button.
2. Load the icon and create the object with the help of QIcon class
3. Set the object of QIcon as icon to the radio button with the help of setIcon method.

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 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")
        # creating object of QICon and loading the icon
        icon = QIcon('logo.png')
        # setting icon to radio button
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
