In this article, we will see how to create dashed border of label in PyQt5 application. Generally, when we create a label with a border, the border is continuous, but we can make a dashed border as well. Below shown how normal and dashed borders are different.

In order to do we will use setStyleSheet() method.

Syntax : label.setStyleSheet(“border :3px black; border-style : dashed”)

Argument : It takes string as argument

Action performed : It makes the border dashed.

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("Normal border", self)
        # moving position
        self.label_1.move(100, 100)
        # setting up the border and padding
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black;")
        # resizing label
        self.label_1.resize(100, 80)
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_2 = QLabel("Dashed border", self)
        # setting up the dashed border
        self.label_2.setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black;
                                    border-style : dashed")
        # moving position
        self.label_2.move(230, 200)
        # resizing the label
        self.label_2.resize(100, 80)
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
