In this article we will see how we can get the focus proxy to the QCalendarWidget. Focus proxy is the setting focus to calendar indirectly i.e by setting focus to the child of it. For example some widgets can “have focus”, but create a child widget, such as QLineEdit, to actually handle the focus. In this case, the widget can set the line edit to be its focus proxy. By default calendar’s QTableView has focus proxy although it can be changed with the help of setFocusProxy method.

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

Syntax : calendar.focusProxy()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It return QWidget 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.calender = QCalendarWidget(self)
        # setting geometry to the calendar
        self.calender.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
        # setting cursor
        # getting child
        child = self.calender.children()[3]
        # setting focus proxy
        # creating label to show the properties
        self.label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        self.label.setGeometry(100, 280, 250, 60)
        # making label multi line
        # getting focus proxy
        value = self.calender.focusProxy()
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Focus Proxy  : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
