In this article, we will see how to add padding to our Label. Padding is just the space between the border and the content. Below is image of label this will helps in better understanding of the padding.

In order to add padding to our label, we will use setStyleSheet() method, below is how without padding label vs padded label looks like.

Syntax : label.setStyleSheet(“padding :15px”)

Argument : It takes string as argument.

Action performed : It adds padding to the label.

Code :

# importing the required libraries
from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # set the title
        # setting  the geometry of window
        self.setGeometry(60, 60, 600, 400)
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel("===============", self)
        # moving position
        self.label_1.move(100, 100)
        # setting up the border
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border :3px solid blue;")
        # resizing label
        self.label_1.resize(100, 100)
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_2 = QLabel("==================", self)
        # setting up the border and adding padding
        self.label_2.setStyleSheet("border :3px solid blue;padding :15px")
        # moving position
        self.label_2.move(230, 200)
        # resizing the label
        self.label_2.resize(100, 100)
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
