PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Accessing Description Property

  • Last Updated : 05 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the description property of the QCalendarWidget. Description property hold the details about the calendar i.e all the details like how it is made and important things related to it. By default description has a empty string although we can add description any time with the help of setAccessibleDescription method.

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

        label.setGeometry(100, 280, 250, 60)
        # making label multi line
        # getting description
        value = calender.accessibleDescription()
        # setting text to the label
