PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Icon Changed Signal

In this article we will see how we can get the icon changed signal from the QCalendarWidget. Icon changed signal is emitted when the calendar’s icon has changed. Setting icon also emit the same signal.

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

Syntax : calendar.windowIconChanged.connect(lambda: print(“Icon Changed”))

Argument : It takes no argument

Action Performed : It will print the message whenever signal get emitted

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)
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 280, 250, 60)
        # making label multi line
        # text
        text = "Icon Changed Signal Emitted"
        # getting the icon changed and
        # when receives the signal printing the message
        calender.windowIconChanged.connect(lambda: label.setText(text))
        # setting icon to the calendar
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
