In this article we will see how to set background image to check box. When we create a check box there is no image associated to it although we can set background color to it. Below is the representation of normal check box vs the check box which has image.

In order to do this we have to set background image in style sheet, below is the style sheet code which can be used with the check box object.

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

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):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating the check-box
        checkbox = QCheckBox('Geek ?', self)
  
        # setting geometry of check box
        checkbox.setGeometry(200, 150, 100, 30)
  
        # setting stylesheet
        # adding background image to check box
        checkbox.setStyleSheet("QCheckBox"
                               "{"
                               "background-image : url(image.png)"
                               "}")
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
