In this article, we will see how we can get the date edit accept delay property of the QCalendarWidget. This property holds the time an inactive date edit is shown before its contents are accepted. If the calendar widget’s date edit is enabled, this property specifies the amount of time (in milliseconds) that the date edit remains open after the most recent user input. Once this time has elapsed, the date specified in the date edit is accepted and the popup is closed. By default, the delay is defined to be 1500 milliseconds (1.5 seconds).

The date edit pop-up appears when we try to select using keyboard, the lesser the value of delay pop-will get closed more quickly. It can be set with the help of setDateEditAcceptDelay method.

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

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)
 
        # removing special cursor
        self.calendar.unsetCursor()
 
        # setting accept delay value
        self.calendar.setDateEditAcceptDelay(2000)
 
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
 
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(50, 280, 420, 120)
 
        # making it multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
 
        # getting delay time in pop-up
        value = self.calendar.dateEditAcceptDelay()
 
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Accept Delay  : " + str(value))
 
 
 
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
 
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
 
 
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
