PyQt5 – Padding in Progress Bar

  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

In this article we will see how to add padding to the progress bar. Padding is the space between border and the bar of progress bar. Below is the representation of normal progress bar vs padded progress bar.

In order to do this we have to change the padding size in the CSS style sheet of progress bar, below is the style sheet code.

QProgressBar
{
border : 1px solid black;
padding : 5px;
}

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 progress bar
        bar = QProgressBar(self)
  
        # setting geometry to progress bar
        bar.setGeometry(200, 150, 200, 30)
  
        # set value to progress bar
        bar.setValue(70)
  
        # setting alignment to center
        bar.setAlignment(Qt.AlignCenter)
  
        # setting padding size 
        # and border to progress bar
        bar.setStyleSheet("QProgressBar"
                          "{"
                          "border : 1px solid black;"
                          "padding : 5px;"
                          "}")
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
