PyQt5 – setChecked() method for Check Box

  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

setChecked method is used to change the state of check box. By default it is un-checked after clicking on the check box widget its states get changed into checked, but with the help of setChecked method we can do it directly without clicking it.

Syntax : checkbox.setChecked(True)

Argument : It takes bool as argument.

Action performed : It will change the state of 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('Check Box', self)
  
        # setting geometry of check box
        checkbox.setGeometry(200, 150, 100, 30)
  
        # setting check box state to checked
        checkbox.setChecked(True)
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
