In this article we will see how we get the rectangle of all the children of 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. Rectangle is the bounding rectangle of each children. 
Note : All children don’t have rectangle as they can be a layout.

In order to do this we have to do the following : 
1. Create a calendar widget 
2. Get all the children of the calendar 
3. Traverse the list of children 
4. Try to get the rectangle in the try, except block and save result in another list 
5. Show the list using label 

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)
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(50, 280, 420, 120)
        # making it multi line
        # getting children
        children = self.calendar.children()
        value = []
        for i in children:
                    # getting children rectangle
                    rect = i.childrenRect()
                    # getting rectangle
                    rect = i.rect()
                # adding it to list
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Rectangles : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
