In this article we will see how we can get the tablet tracking property of the QCalendarWidget. If tablet tracking is disabled (the default), the calendar only receives tablet move events when the stylus is in contact with the tablet, or at least one stylus button is pressed, while the stylus is being moved. If tablet tracking is enabled, the calendar receives tablet move events even while hovering in proximity. This is useful for monitoring position as well as the auxiliary properties such as rotation and tilt, and providing feedback in the UI. We can tablet tracking property with the help of setTabletTracking method.

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

Syntax : calendar.hasTabletTracking()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It return bool

Below is the implementation

Python3




# 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 calendar
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
  
        # setting cursor
        self.calendar.setCursor(Qt.PointingHandCursor)
  
        # enabling tablet tracking
        self.calendar.setTabletTracking(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 tablet tracking
        value = self.calendar.hasTabletTracking()
  
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Tablet 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())
