In this article, we will see how we can find the children of QCalendarWidget using the type of the child/children. Calendar is not a stand alone widget it consists 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 find the child using type with the help of findChild method but this method only return single widget therefore if there is more than one child with similar type then problem occurs.

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

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 children through type
        value = self.calendar.findChildren(QWidget)
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Children :" + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
