PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Getting Header Text Format

  • Last Updated : 10 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get text format of the headers of the QCalendarWidget. Calendar has two header one which tell the week days i.e horizontal header and other is the vertical header which tells the week number. We can set the text to header with the help of setHeaderTextFormat method, setting header text format means to the set the format i.e style to these two headers.

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

Syntax : calendar.headerTextFormat()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It return 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 calender
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
        # setting cursor
        # format
        format = QTextCharFormat()
        format.setFont(QFont('Times', 12))
        # setting header text format
        # 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 header text format
        value = self.calendar.headerTextFormat()
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Header Format : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
