PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Getting Cursor Shape

  • Last Updated : 14 Jan, 2022

In this article we will see how we can get the cursor shape of the QCalendarWidget. Cursor is the mouse pointer by default cursor shape i.e cursor look same for both window or calendar although there are a variety of cursor available for calendar, for example, split cursor, size cursor etc. By default, it has the arrow cursor but can be changed with the help of setCursor method.

In order to do this we will use cursor method with the QCalendarWidget object.

Syntax : calendar.cursor()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It return QCursor object

Below is the implementation

Python3




# 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.calendar = QCalendarWidget(self)
  
        # setting geometry to the calendar
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
  
        # setting cursor
        self.calendar.setCursor(Qt.PointingHandCursor)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
  
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(50, 280, 420, 120)
  
        # making it multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting cursor
        value = self.calendar.cursor()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Cursor : " + str(value))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
