PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Accessing Children Rectangle

  • Last Updated : 08 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we get the children rectangle of the QCalendarWidget. Calendar is not alone a single widget it is a mixture of lots of smaller widget which we refer as calendar’s child. There are many child such as table view, item delegate etc, we use children method to get all the children of it. Children rectangle is the bounding rectangle of all the children except hidden children.

In order to do this we will use childrenRect method with the QCalendarWidget object.

Syntax : calendar.childrenRect()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It return QRect object



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):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 650, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        self.calender = QCalendarWidget(self)
  
        # setting geometry to the calender
        self.calender.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
  
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(50, 280, 420, 120)
  
        # making it multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting children rectangle 
        value = self.calender.childrenRect()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Children Rectangle : " + str(value))
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
