PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Getting Input Method Hints Property

  • Last Updated : 11 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the input method property of the QCalendarWidget. Input method hints is used by the input method to retrieve hints as to how the input method should operate. For example, if the Qt.ImhFormattedNumbersOnly flag is set, the input method may change its visual components to reflect that only numbers can be entered in the calendar widget. In order to set the input method property we use setInputMethodHints method.

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

Syntax : calendar.inputMethodHints()



Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It return method hint object as argument

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):
        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 calender
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
  
        # setting cursor
        self.calendar.setCursor(Qt.PointingHandCursor)
  
        # setting input method hint     
        self.calendar.setInputMethodHints(Qt.ImhPreferNumbers)
  
        # 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
        self.label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting input method hint
        value = self.calendar.inputMethodHints()
  
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Input Method Hint : " + str(value))
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
