PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Checking if it is enabled to its ancestor

In this article we will see how we can check if the QCalendarWidget is enabled to its ancestor. In order to do this we use isEnabledTo method. This method returns true if this calendar would become enabled if ancestor is enabled; otherwise returns false. By default calendar is enabled to all its parents although we can change the enable property with the help of setEnabled method.

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

Syntax : calendar.isEnabledTo(parent)

Argument : It takes QWidget object as 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
        # setting enabled property
        # 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 if the calendar is enabled to main window
        value = self.calendar.isEnabledTo(self)
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Enabled to main window : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
