Report issue

In this article we will see how we can get the accept drop property of the QCalendarWidget. We know we can make drag enabled using setDragEnabled method with calendar object, but what is the use of dragging the text we can’t drop it any where. Allowing accept drop means that calendar has a property now to accept the drop text of the other calendar widget. Accepting drops is used for setting year as it is the spin box object as child, by default this property is false but can be changed with the help of setAcceptDrops method.

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

Syntax : calendar.acceptDrops() 

Argument : It takes no argument 

Action Performed : 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, 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)
        # accepting drops
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 280, 250, 60)
        # making label multi line
        # getting accept drops property
        value = calendar.acceptDrops()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Accept drop : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
