PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Getting Mouse Tracking Property

  • Last Updated : 10 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the mouse tracking property to the QCalendarWidget. If mouse tracking is disabled (the default), the calendar will only receive mouse move events when at least one mouse button is pressed while the mouse is being moved. If mouse tracking is enabled, the calendar will receive mouse move events even if no buttons are pressed. We can set the mouse tracking property with the help of setMouseTracking method.

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

Syntax : calendar.hasMouseTracking()



Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It return bool

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)
          
        # enabling mouse tracking
        self.calendar.setMouseTracking(True)
  
        # 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 mouse tracking
        value = self.calendar.hasMouseTracking()
  
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Mouse Tracking ? : " + str(value))
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
