PyQt5 – Setting padding size at different sides of Status Bar

  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

In this article we will see how to set different padding size for different edges of Status Bar.

Status bar allows us to set only padding for top and bottom edge, there is no padding available for right or left edge. We can set padding using padding in Style Sheet, in order to set different padding sizes we will use padding-top and padding-bottom in style sheet.

Note : We can set padding sizes for different sides although, due to quality of status bar i.e it always makes the text in vertically middle of status bar, it will overwrite the padding with smaller edge and make it equal to bigger size.

Syntax :

self.statusBar().setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black;"
                               "padding-top: 25px; "
                               "padding-bottom: 25px;")

Argument : It takes string as argument.



Action performed : It set padding to both the sides, but get overwritten and maximum length padding is set.

Code :




from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
import sys
  
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
        # set the title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python")
  
        # setting  the geometry of window
        self.setGeometry(60, 60, 600, 400)
  
        # setting status bar message
        self.statusBar().showMessage("This is status bar")
  
        # setting  border and padding with different sizes
        self.statusBar().setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black;"
                                       "padding-top: 25px; "
                                       "padding-bottom: 10px;")
  
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel("status bar", self)
  
        # moving position
        self.label_1.move(100, 100)
  
        # setting up the border
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border :1px solid blue;")
  
        # resizing label
        self.label_1.adjustSize()
  
        # show all the widgets
        self.show()
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
