PyQt button which supports svg icon

Qt's setIcon of button widget doesn't help that much in terms of setting SVG image as an icon. It's just another good old fashioned pixmap icon.

So i overrided the method to set SVG icon with the power of CSS.

By the way, parent class of this is QPushButton and SvgAbstractButton. (Multiple inheritance)

(the repo/package name has changed on 2022/05/18 from pyqt-svg-icon-pushbutton)

Default background color of this is transparent.

If you want to use svg supporting QToolButton instead of QPushButton, use pyqt-svg-toolbutton.

Requirements

  • PyQt5 >= 5.8

Setup

python -m pip install pyqt-svg-button

Usage

  • SvgButton(base_widget: QWidget = None) - Constructor. Base widget is the widget that the button's background color based of when button get hovered/pressed by mouse cursor. If value is default(None), background color of button which is getting hovered/pressed will set to #DDDDDD, #FFFFFF.

  • setIcon(icon: str) - set the icon. Icon should be a SVG file's name. This is overriding method.

  • setPadding(padding: int) - set the button's padding.

  • setBorderRadius(border_radius: int)

  • setBackground(background=None) - you can give background argument's value either 'transparent' or 6-digits or 3-digits hex color string or color's name like 'red', 'green'. If you don't give any arguments(None), background will automatically be set based on base widget's color if you give base widget argument to SvgButton constructor.

  • setAsCircle() - set button's shape as circle.
