Put button and icon inside QLineEdit

  • I need to put an SVG icon on the left and button on the right inside QLineEdit to get something like this

    custom line edit

    I sucessfully managed to add QToolButton on the right with following code

    class MyLineEdit(QLineEdit):
        def __init__(self, parent=None):
            QLineEdit.__init__(self, parent)
            self.btnToggle = QToolButton(self)
            self.btnToggle.setStyleSheet('QToolButton { border: none; padding: 0px; }')
            frameWidth = self.style().pixelMetric(QStyle.PM_DefaultFrameWidth)
            self.setStyleSheet('QLineEdit {{ padding-right: {}px; }} '.format(self.btnToggle.sizeHint().width() + frameWidth + 1))
            msz = self.minimumSizeHint()
            self.setMinimumSize(max(msz.width(), self.btnToggle.sizeHint().height() + frameWidth * 2 + 2),
                                max(msz.height(), self.btnToggle.sizeHint().height() + frameWidth * 2 + 2))
        def resizeEvent(self, event):
            sz = self.btnToggle.sizeHint()
            frameWidth = self.style().pixelMetric(QStyle.PM_DefaultFrameWidth)
            self.btnToggle.move(self.rect().right() - frameWidth - sz.width(),
                               (self.rect().bottom() + 1 - sz.height())/2)

    But can't figure out how to add svg image (using QSvgWidget as display) in the right. Any ideas how to do this?

    simply put the QSvgWidget and the line edit widget into a QHBoxLayout and set the content-margins and spacing to 0.
    Then put this layout into a plain container widget.
