PyQt5 – Image Indicator of Check Box

  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

Check box is basically divided into two components one is the indicator which is on the left side by default and other is the check box itself i.e the label part which has text on it. In this article we will see how to set image to a indicator.

Below is the representation of normal indicator of check box vs the check box with image on indicator.

In order to set image to a indicator we have to change the style sheet of the indicator of the check box. Below is the style sheet code which is used with the check box object.

QCheckBox::indicator
{
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, 80)
  
        # setting stylesheet
        # adding background image to indicator of check box 
        # and changing with and height of indicator
        checkbox.setStyleSheet("QCheckBox::indicator"
                               "{"
                               "background-image : url(image.png);"
                               "width :40px;"
                               "height : 40px;"
                               "}")
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
