PyQt5 QListWidget – Getting Style Sheet

In this article we will see how we can get style sheet to the QListWidget. QListWidget is a convenience class that provides a list view with a classic item-based interface for adding and removing items. QListWidget uses an internal model to manage each QListWidgetItem in the list. Style sheet is the properties which are used to make the appearance better i.e by creating customized design. It can be set with the help of setStyleSheet method. It can be set with the help of setStyleSheet method.

In order to do this we will use styleSheet method with the list widget object.

QListWidget
{
border : 2px solid black;
background : lightgreen;
