PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Checking if it is ancestor of given widget
  • Last Updated : 11 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can check if the QCalendarWidget is ancestor of the given widget or not. In order todo so we use isAncestorOf method, this method returns true if the calendar is a parent, (or grandparent and so on to any level), of the given child, and both widgets are within the same window; otherwise returns false.

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

Syntax : calendar.isAncestorOf(query)

Argument : It takes QWidget object as argument

Return : It return bool



Below is the implementation
