In this article we will see how we can set border to the QCommandLinkButton according to the hover states. Command link button is a special type of button it has qualities of both push-button and the radio button. By default there is no extra border to the command link button although when it gets pressed we are able to see the border, we can set custom border to it as well. There are basically two hover states one is hovering i.e when mouse is on the command link button and second is anti hover state i.e when cursor is not on the command link button.

In order to do this we will set style sheet code to it for that we use setStyleSheet method with the command link button object, below is the stylesheet code

border : 4px solid green;
border : 2px solid red;

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):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 500, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a command link button
        cl_button = QCommandLinkButton("Press", self)
        # setting geometry
        cl_button.setGeometry(250, 100, 200, 50)
        # setting style sheet
        # setting border to it for hover and anti hover state
                                "border : 4px solid green;"
                                "QCommandLinkButton::! hover"
                                "border : 2px solid red;"
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
