Report issue
In this article we will see how we can get the maximum width of the QCalendarWidget. Maximum width of the calendar is that width after which it can’t be extended any further, by default when we create a calendar inside the layout and when the window get extended calendar size also increases therefore there is need to set the maximum width.
In order to do this we will use maximumWidth method with the QCalendarWidget object. Syntax : calendar.maximumWidth() Argument : It takes no argument Return : It return integer
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
# QCalendarWidget Class
class Calendar(QCalendarWidget):
    # constructor
    def __init__(self, parent = None):
        super(Calendar, self).__init__(parent)
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 500, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a layout
        layout = QVBoxLayout()
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        # as Calendar class inherits QCalendarWidget
        self.calendar = Calendar(self)
        # setting cursor
        # adding calendar tot he layout
        # setting maximum width of the calendar
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
        # adding label to the layout
        # getting maximum width
        value = self.calendar.maximumWidth()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Maximum Width  : " + str(value))
        # setting layout
        widget = QWidget()
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
