PyQt5 – Radio button indicator at right side

In this article we will see how to make indicator of radio button at the right side. By default when we create a radio button its indicator is at the left side. Indicator of radio button is the round check-able part which indicates it is checked or not.

Below is normal radio button vs the radio button whose indicator is at right side.

In order to make this type of widget we have to do the following –

1. Create a radio button using QRadioButton class.
2. Change its layout direction with the help of setLayoutDirection by default it is left to right, set it to right to left.

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, 600, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a radio button
        radio_button = QRadioButton("Radio Button", self)
        # setting geometry of radio button
        radio_button.setGeometry(200, 150, 100, 40)
        # setting layout direction of radio button
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
