In this article, we will see how we check if the QCalendarWidget has the horizontal header or not. Horizontal header is the place in QCalendarWidget which shows the days name by default short form of days are shown for example Monday is displayed as Mon, below is the horizontal header representation.

Horizontal can be removed using overriding the structure of the QCalendarWidget or by setting header format value to 0, therefore in order to check if there is header or not we have to get the value of the header and have to compare with the 0 value to know if there is header or not.

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
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        calendar = QCalendarWidget(self)
        # setting geometry to the calendar
        calendar.setGeometry(10, 10, 400, 250)
        # removing horizontal header
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 280, 250, 60)
        # making label multi line
        # getting the horizontal header value
        value = calender.horizontalHeaderFormat()
        # text
        text = "There exist horizontal head"
        # comparing value with 0
        if value == 0:
            text = "There is no horizontal head"
        # setting text to the label
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
