PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Checking Edit Focus Property
  • Last Updated : 10 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can check if the edit focus is enabled or not of the QCalendarWidget. If this property is enabled it make the calendar to have edit focus, in which case Qt::Key_Up and Qt::Key_Down will be delivered to the calendar normally; otherwise, Qt::Key_Up and Qt::Key_Down are used to change focus. It can be made enable or disable using setEditFocus method.

Note : This feature is only available in Qt for Embedded Linux.

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

Syntax : calendar.hasEditFocus()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It return bool

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 calender
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
        # setting cursor
        # enabling edit focus
        # 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
        # checking edit focus
        value = self.calendar.hasEditFocus()
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Edit Focus : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
