In this article we will see how we can make the focus to any other widget from QCalendarWidget. In order to do this we use focusNextPrevChild method. It finds a new widget to give the keyboard focus to, as appropriate for Tab and Shift+Tab, and returns true if it can find a new widget, or false if it can’t.

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

Syntax : calendar.focusNextPrevChild(next)

Argument: It takes bool as argument, if next is true, this function searches forward, if next is false, it searches backward.

Return : It return bool

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.calender = QCalendarWidget(self)
  
        # setting geometry to the calendar
        self.calender.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
  
        # setting cursor
        self.calender.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)
  
        # focus on previous child
        value = self.calender.focusNextPrevChild(False)
  
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Found another focus ? :" + str(value))
  
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
