PyQt5 – Set skin to line edit part of non-editable combobox

  • Last Updated : 04 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set skin to the line edit part of the non-editable combo box. Line edit is the part which is used to enter and view the item. Skin is basically background image which adjust itself according to the size of line edit.

Note : When we add line edit object to the combo box it will make combo box editable there is need to make it non-editable

Steps to do this :
1. Create a combo box
2. Create a QLineEdit object
3. Set skin to the QlineEdit object
4. Make the line edit non-editable
5. Add QLineEdit object to the combo box

Syntax :

# creating line edit object
line_edit = QLineEdit()

# setting skin to line edit object
                        "border-image : url(skin.png);"

# making it non editable

# adding line edit object to combo 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):
        # 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 check-able combo box object
        self.combo_box = QComboBox(self)
        # setting geometry of combo box
        self.combo_box.setGeometry(200, 150, 200, 80)
        # geek list
        geek_list = ["Sayian", "Super Sayian", "Super Sayian 2", "Super Sayian B"]
        # adding list of items to combo box
        # creating line edit object
        line_edit = QLineEdit()
        # setting skin to line edit
                                "border-image : url(skin.png);"
        # making it non editable
        # adding line edit object to combo box
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
