PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Making it active window
  • Last Updated : 05 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can make the QCalendarWidget an active window. An active window is a visible top-level window that has the keyboard input focus. Making it active window will sets the top-level widget containing this calendar to be the active window.

Note : The window must be visible, otherwise activateWindow() has no effect.

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

Syntax : calendar.activateWindow()

Argument : It takes no argument



Action Performed : 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
  
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
  
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        calender = QCalendarWidget(self)
  
        # setting geometry to the calender
        calender.setGeometry(10, 10, 400, 250)
  
        # setting name
        calender.setAccessibleName("Geek Calendar")
  
        # making it an active window
        calender.activateWindow()
          
  
         
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
