PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Inserting Multiple QAction

  • Last Updated : 15 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can insert multiple QAction to the QCalendarWidget at the same time. In order to do this we use insertActions method, this method inserts the action actions to the calendar’s list of actions, before the given action. It appends the actions if before is None or before is not a valid action for this widget.

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

Syntax : calendar.insertActions(before, action_list)

Argument : It takes QAction object and a list as argument

Return : It return None



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
  
# QCalendarWidget Class
class Calendar(QCalendarWidget):
  
    # constructor
    def __init__(self, parent = None):
        super(Calendar, self).__init__(parent)
  
  
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
        # as Calendar class inherits QCalendarWidget
        self.calendar = Calendar(self)
  
        # setting geometry to the calender
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
  
        # setting cursor
        self.calendar.setCursor(Qt.PointingHandCursor)
  
        # creating a QAction objects
        action1 = QAction("Geek", self)
        action2 = QAction("Python", self)
  
        # creating action list
        action_list = [action1, action2]
  
        # adding actions to calendar
        self.calendar.addActions(action_list)
  
        # actions
        action_3 = QAction("BTech", self)
        action_4 = QAction("MTech", self)
  
        # action list
        insert_action_list = [action_3, action_4]
  
        # inserting action in before second action
        self.calendar.insertActions(action2, insert_action_list)
  
        # creating label to show the properties
        self.label = QLabel(self)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        self.label.setGeometry(100, 280, 300, 100)
  
        # making label multi line
        self.label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting action of the calendar
        value = self.calendar.actions()
  
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Actions : " + str(value))
  
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
