PyQt5 QCalendarWidget -Getting name property
  • Last Updated : 05 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the name property of the QCalendarWidget. Name property hold the name of the calendar, name is used to distinguish the calendar with each other i.e categorize them according to the use, for example, birth calendar, booking calendar etc. By default name property contains an empty string although we can set name any time with the help of setAccessibleName method.

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

Syntax : calendar.accessibleName()

Argument : It takes no argument

Action Performed : It return string



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, 600, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        calender = QCalendarWidget(self)
  
        # setting geometry to the calender
        calender.setGeometry(10, 10, 400, 250)
  
        # setting name
        calender.setAccessibleName("Geek Calendar")
  
        # 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 name
        value = calender.accessibleName()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Name: " + str(value))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
