PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Getting Minimum Date

  • Last Updated : 06 Aug, 2021
Geek Week

In this article, we will see how we can get the minimum date of the QCalendarWidget. The minimum date of QCalendarWidget restricts the user selection below the minimum date, i.e. the user can only select dates greater than the specified minimum date. Dates below the minimum date gets disabled. We use setMinimumDate method to set the maximum date.

In order to do this we will use minimumDate method with the QCalendarWidget object.
Syntax : calendar.minimumDate()
Argument : It takes no argument
Return : It return QDate object 
 

Below is the implementation  

Python3




# 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, 600, 400)
 
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
 
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
 
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
 
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        calendar = QCalendarWidget(self)
 
        # setting geometry to the calender
        calender.setGeometry(10, 10, 400, 250)
 
        # lower bound date
        l_date = QDate(2020, 6, 5)
 
        # setting minimum date
        calender.setMinimumDate(l_date)
 
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
 
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 280, 250, 60)
 
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
 
        # getting minimum date
        value = calender.minimumDate()
 
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Minimum Date : " + str(value))
 
 
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
 
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
 
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
