[ How to add border around QWidget? ]

I am using PyQT4 to create a sample application for a prospective client. I am looking for some way to put a border around a specific widget. Please give me some pointers to look for.

updated :

class CentralWidget(QtGui.QWidget):

    def __init__(self, mainWindow):
        super(CentralWidget, self).__init__()


Above code defines the widget.

According to the stylesheet documentation, QWidget does not support the border property.

You have to use something like a QFrame:

Here it is a complete example

from PyQt4 import QtGui,QtCore

class CentralWidget(QtGui.QFrame):

    def __init__(self, *args):
        super(CentralWidget, self).__init__(*args)
        self.setStyleSheet("background-color: rgb(255,0,0); margin:5px; border:1px solid rgb(0, 255, 0); ")

if __name__ == '__main__':
    import sys
    app = QtGui.QApplication(sys.argv)
    mw = QtGui.QMainWindow()
    w = CentralWidget(mw)
