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

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

Syntax : calendar.insertAction(before, action)

Argument : It takes two QAction object as argument as argument, first is the QAction which is already added and second is the QAction which will be inserted before the ‘before’ QAction

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):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 650, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        # as Calendar class inherits QCalendarWidget
        self.calendar = Calendar(self)
        # setting geometry to the calendar
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
        # setting cursor
        # creating a QAction objects
        action1 = QAction("Geek", self)
        action2 = QAction("Python", self)
        # creating action list
        action_list = [action1, action2]
        # adding actions to calendar
        # 3 rd action
        action_mid = QAction("BTech", self)
        # inserting action in before second action
        self.calendar.insertAction(action2, action_mid)
        # 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
        # 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
