PyQt5 QColorDialog – Setting Custom Color

In this article we will see how we can set the custom color in the QColorDialog widget. Custom colors the color made by the user they can be set at the run time with the help of mouse although we can add custom color programmatically, by default all custom colors are white. Below is how the custom color in color dialog looks like

In order to do this we use setCustomColor method with the QColorDialog object

Syntax : dialog.setCustomColor(i, color)

Argument : It takes integer i.e index and QColor object as argument

Return : It returns None



Note : This function does not apply to the Native Color Dialog on the macOS platform. If you still require this function, use the QColorDialog.DontUseNativeDialog option.

Below is the implementation
