In this article we will see how we can grab the keyboard input for the QCalendarWidget. By grabbing keyboard the calendar will not be affected, except that it doesn’t receive any keyboard events. setFocus moves the focus as usual, but the new focus widget receives keyboard events only after releaseKeyboard is called.

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

Syntax : calendar.grabKeyboard()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It return None

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)
  
        # grabbing keyboard input
        self.calendar.grabKeyboard()
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())

Output :
Mouse inputs are working but keyboard inputs are not working
