In this article we will see how to add image to bar of progress bar. We can set the background image but in order to set image to a bar we have to modify the progress bar chunk CSS, below is how normal background image and background image to a bar looks like.

In order to do this below is the CSS style sheet for chunk file

QProgressBar::chunk
{
 background-image : url(image.png);
}

This style sheet is used by setStyleSheet method, below is the implementation
