In this article we will see how we can grab the rectangle from the QCalendarWidget. Grabbing rectangle means to renders the calendar into a pixmap restricted by the given rectangle. If the calendar has any children, then they are also painted in the appropriate positions.

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

Syntax : calendar.grab(rectangle)

Argument : It takes QRect object as argument

Return : It return QPixmap object

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)
  
        # 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)
  
        # rectangle
        rec = QRect(50, 10, 100, 100)
  
        # grab
        value = self.calendar.grab(rec)
  
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Pixmap : " + str(value))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
