In this article we will see how we can get the content rectangle to the QCalendarWidget. Content rectangle is the bounding rectangle of the content, by default content margin value is zero, so content rectangle is equal to the actual bounding rectangle but when margin change it become smaller as content rectangle is the rectangle excluding the margins. We can add margin with the help of setContentsMargins method.

In order to do this we will use contentsRect method with the QCalendarWidget object.
Syntax : calendar.contentsRect()
Argument : It takes no argument
Return : It return QRect 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.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 Rectangle
        value = self.calendar.contentsRect()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Content Rectangle: " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
