PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Getting Minimum Width

  • Last Updated : 17 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the minimum width of the QCalendarWidget. Minimum width of the calendar is that width after which it can’t be shrunk any further, by default when we create a calendar inside the layout and when the window get extended or shrinks calendar size also increases and shrinks, therefore, there is need to set the minimum width. We can set the minimum width to the calendar with the help of setMinimumWidth method.

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

Syntax : calendar.minimumWidth()

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)
        self.setMouseTracking(True)
  
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
  
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 500, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
  
    # 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
        self.calendar.setCursor(Qt.PointingHandCursor)
  
        # adding calendar tot he layout
        layout.addWidget(self.calendar)
  
        # setting minimum width of the calendar
        self.calendar.setMinimumWidth(400)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
  
        # adding label to the layout
        layout.addWidget(label)
  
        # getting minimum width
        value = self.calendar.minimumWidth()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Minimum Width : " + str(value))
  
        # setting layout
        widget = QWidget()
        widget.setLayout(layout)
        self.setCentralWidget(widget)
  
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
