PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Getting child using its type

  • Last Updated : 09 Jun, 2020
Geek Week

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):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 650, 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 cursor
        self.calender.setCursor(Qt.PointingHandCursor)
  
        # 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
        self.label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting child through type
        value = self.calender.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
sys.exit(App.exec())
