PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Getting child using ID
  • Last Updated : 09 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can find the child of QCalendarWidget using the ID of the child. Calendar is not a stand alone widget it consist of small widgets that are called child for example the dates and spin box for year and drop down menu for the month collectively make the calendar. We can get the chilren using children method.

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

Syntax : calendar.find(id)

Argument : It takes effective id object as argument

Return : It return child object

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.calender = QCalendarWidget(self)
        # setting geometry to the calender
        self.calender.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
        # setting cursor
        # 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
        # children
        children = self.calender.children()
        c_id = children[3].winId()
        # getting child through ID
        value = self.calender.find(c_id)
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Child :" + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
