In this article we will see how we can get the font information of the QCalendarWidget. A font is a particular size, weight and style of a typeface. Each font was a matched set of type, one piece for each glyph. By changing font we can change the style of the text present in the calendar. We can change/set font using setFont method. Font information tell the qualities of the font like if it is bold or not, italic or not, pixel size and many other information.

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

Syntax : calendar.fontInfo()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It return QFontInfo 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):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 650, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        self.calendar = QCalendarWidget(self)
        # setting geometry to the calendar
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
        # setting cursor
        # font
        font = QFont('Times', 5)
        # setting font to the calendar
        # creating label to show the properties
        self.label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        self.label.setGeometry(100, 280, 250, 60)
        # making label multi line
        # getting font Info Object
        value = self.calendar.fontInfo()
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Font Info : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
