PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Getting the Selection mode
  • Last Updated : 03 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the selection mode of the QCalenderWidget. Selection mode is basically the quality of calendar how date is selected. There are two modes available for the QCalendarWidget first is the NoSelection mode its value is 0 and in this mode no date can be selected. And other is the SingleSelection its is the default mode and its value is 1, in this mode at a time single date can be selected. We use setSelectionMode method to set the mode to the QCalendarWidget object.

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

Syntax : calender.selectionMode()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns selection mode object but when printed it shows associated value with the mode.

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
        calender = QCalendarWidget(self)
        # setting geometry to the calender
        calender.setGeometry(10, 10, 400, 250)
        # setting selection mode
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 280, 250, 60)
        # making label multi line
        # getting the selection mode
        value = calender.selectionMode()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Selection Mode : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
