PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Getting Content Margin

  • Last Updated : 19 Aug, 2021

In this article we will see how we can get the content margin to the QCalendarWidget. By default content margin value is zero. Margin is the extra space between the content and the exterior part, margin gives some space from the exterior parts. We can set/ add margin to calendar with the help of setContentsMargins method.

In order to do this we will use contentsMargins method with the QCalendarWidget object.
Syntax : calendar.contentsMargins()
Argument : It takes no argument
Return : It return QMargins object

        # 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 content margin
        self.calendar.setContentsMargins(40, 40, 40, 40)
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(50, 280, 420, 120)
        # making it multi line
        # getting content margin
        value = self.calendar.contentsMargins()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Content Margins : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
