PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Grabbing Mouse Input

  • Last Updated : 09 Jun, 2020

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

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

Syntax : calendar.grabMouse()



Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It return None

Note: Only visible calendar can grab mouse input. If isVisible() returns false for a calendar then it cannot call grabMouse().

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):
        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 calender
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
  
        # setting cursor
        self.calendar.setCursor(Qt.PointingHandCursor)
  
        # grabbing mouse input
        self.calendar.grabMouse()
  
         
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())

Output :
Mouse is not working on the calendar, but keyboard is working
