PyQt5 – Set skin to editable combobox when in ON state
  • Last Updated : 04 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set skin to the editable combo box when it is in on state. Skin is basically the background image but skin adjust its size according to the size of combo box. ON state is when list view(item view) is open, setEditable method is used to make combo box editable. Skin will only appear the combo box is editable and it is in on state

In order to do this we have to change the style sheet code of the combo box, below is the style sheet code

QComboBox::editable:on
{
border-image : url(image.png);
}

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 a check-able combo box object
        self.combo_box = QComboBox(self)
  
        # setting geometry of combo box
        self.combo_box.setGeometry(200, 150, 200, 80)
  
        # making combo box editable
        self.combo_box.setEditable(True)
  
        # geek list
        geek_list = ["Sayian", "Super Sayian", "Super Sayian 2", "Super Sayian B"]
  
        # adding list of items to combo box
        self.combo_box.addItems(geek_list)
  
        # setting style sheet of combo box
        # adding skin to the combo box when it is editable
        # and when it in on state
        self.combo_box.setStyleSheet("QComboBox::editable:on"
                                     "{"
                                     "border-image : url(image.png);"
                                     "border : 1px solid black;"
                                     "}")
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
window.show()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())

Output :

When list view is opened
