In this article we will see about how to set icon to a check box. Setting icon to a check box is similar to setting icon to a main window, icon of check box appear in between the indicator and the check box it self below is how normal check box vs check box with icon looks like.

In order to do this we will use setIcon method.

Syntax : checkbox.setIcon(QIcon(‘icon.png’))

Argument : It takes file name or path as argument.



Action performed : It will set icon to the check box

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, 600, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating the check-box
        checkbox = QCheckBox('Geek ?', self)
  
        # setting geometry of check box
        checkbox.setGeometry(200, 150, 100, 30)
  
        # setting icon to check box
        checkbox.setIcon(QIcon('logo.png'))
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
