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 
 

Python3




# 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.calendar = QCalendarWidget(self)
 
        # setting geometry to the calendar
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
 
        # setting cursor
        self.calendar.setCursor(Qt.PointingHandCursor)
 
        # enabling edit focus
        self.calendar.setEditFocus(True)
 
        # 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
        self.label.setWordWrap(True)
 
        # 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
sys.exit(App.exec())

Output :
