In this article we will see how we can set skin to the check box when it is in checked state, by default there is no image associated to the check box. Skin is basically a background image who adjust it self according to the size of the check box.

In order to add skin to checked state check box we have to change the style sheet code, below is the style sheet code.

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):
        # 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 the check-box
        checkbox1 = QCheckBox('Geek ?', self)
        # setting geometry of check box
        checkbox1.setGeometry(200, 150, 100, 40)
        # setting tri-state check box
        # changing style sheet code of check box
        # adding skin to checked check box
                                "border-image : url(image.png);"
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
