  • Last Updated : 17 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the object name of the QCalendarWidget. Object name is basically name given to the object of calendar, we can find the objects in the PyQt5 application with the help of object name, we can find it with the help of findChild method. We can set the object name to the calendar with the help of setObjectName method.

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

Syntax : calendar.objectName()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : 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
# 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 QCalendarWidget object
        # as Calendar class inherits QCalendarWidget
        self.calendar = Calendar(self)
        # setting cursor
        # setting size of the calendar
        self.calendar.resize(300, 240)
        # move the calendar
        self.calendar.move(10, 10)
        # setting object name of calendar
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 280, 250, 60)
        # making label multi line
        # getting calendar object name
        value = self.calendar.objectName()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Object Name : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
