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

In order to do this we will use findChild method with the QCalendarWidget object.
Syntax : calendar.findChild(type)
Argument : It takes type of the child argument
Return : It return child object 

Note : If there is more than one child with same type then it will return that widget who comes first in the child stack
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 calendar
        self.calendar.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
        # getting child through type
        value = self.calendar.findChild(QItemDelegate)
        # 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
