In this article, we will see how we can get the date text format to the specific date in the QCalendarWidget. Setting the date text format makes the specified date looks more special such as increasing the size and other features. Below is how a date with date text format looks like.


In order to do this we will use dateTextFormat method with the QCalendarWidget object.
Syntax : calendar.dateTextFormat()
Argument : It takes no argument
Return : It return dictionary where keys are QDate object and values are QTextCharFormat 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 cursor
        # format
        format = QTextCharFormat()
        format.setFont(QFont('Times', 15))
        # date
        date = QDate(2020, 6, 10)
        # setting date text format
        self.calendar.setDateTextFormat(date, format)
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(50, 280, 420, 120)
        # making it multi line
        # checking date text format
        value = self.calendar.dateTextFormat()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Date Text format: " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
