PyQt5 QCommandLinkButton – Setting Border for Pressed states

  • Last Updated : 01 Jul, 2020
Geek Week

In this article we will see how we can set border to the QCommandLinkButton according to the pressed 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 the custom border to it as well.

There are basically two pressed states one is pressed i.e when the command link button is pressed i.e clicked and second is anti pressed state i.e when the command link button is not clicked.

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

QCommandLinkButton::pressed
{
border : 4px solid green;
}
QCommandLinkButton::!pressed
{
border : 2px solid black;
}

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, 500, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # 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 pressed and anti pressed state
        cl_button.setStyleSheet("QCommandLinkButton::pressed"
                                "{"
                                "border : 4px solid green;"
                                "}"
                                "QCommandLinkButton::! pressed"
                                "{"
                                "border : 2px solid black;"
                                "}")
  
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
