PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Getting Auto Fill Background Property
  • Last Updated : 08 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we get the auto fill property of the QCalendarWidget, this property will cause Qt to fill the background of the calendar before invoking the paint event. The color used is defined by the QPalette. By default this property is false which can be changed with the help of setAutoFillBackground method.

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

Syntax : calendar.autoFillBackground(True)

Argument : It takes no 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):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        self.calender = QCalendarWidget(self)
  
        # setting geometry to the calender
        self.calender.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
  
        # setting style sheet
        self.calender.setStyleSheet("background : lightgreen;")
  
        # enabling auto fill background
        self.calender.setAutoFillBackground(True)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
  
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(120, 280, 200, 60)
  
        # making it multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting the auto fill background property
        value = self.calender.autoFillBackground()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Auto Fill Background : " + str(value))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
