PyQt5 – Setting background image to indicator when hover checked Check Box
  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

In this article we will see how to set background image to indicator of check box when it is in checked state and mouse hover it. In order to do so we have to change the style sheet of the indicator in the check box for checked state and when mouse is moving over it.

Below is the style sheet code.

QCheckBox::indicator:checked:hover
{
background-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 the check-box
        checkbox = QCheckBox('Geek ?', self)
  
        # setting geometry of check box
        checkbox.setGeometry(200, 150, 100, 60)
  
        # changing size of indicator
        # adding background image to the indicator
        # when it is in checked state and mouse hover over it
        checkbox.setStyleSheet("QCheckBox::indicator"
                               "{"
                               "width : 60px;"
                               "height : 60px;"
                               "}"
                               "QCheckBox::indicator:checked:hover"
                               "{"
                               "background-image : url(indicator_image.png);"
                               "}")
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
