In this article we will see how we can get the selected date of QCalendarWidget, selected date is the date that is currently highlighted user can change the selected date using mouse and cursor by default selected date is the real-time date although we can set the selected date any time with the help of setSelectedDate method.

Note : The selected date must be within the date range specified by the minimumDate and maximumDate properties. 

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

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):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        calendar = QCalendarWidget(self)
        # setting geometry to the calendar
        calendar.setGeometry(10, 10, 400, 250)
        # date
        date = QDate(2021, 1, 1)
        # setting selected date
        # creating label
        label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 270, 250, 60)
        # making label multi line
        # getting the selected date
        value = calendar.selectedDate()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Selected Date: " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
