We can access the mouse grabber property with the help of mouseGrabber method, this method returns the calendar or its children that is currently grabbing the mouse input. If no widget in this application is currently grabbing the mouse, None is returned. We can grab the mouse with the help of grabMouse method.

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

Return : It return QWidget object

Below is the implementation




# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
from PyQt5 import QtCore, QtGui

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.calendar = QCalendarWidget(self)
  
        # setting geometry to the calender
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
  
        # setting cursor
        self.calendar.setCursor(Qt.PointingHandCursor)
  
        # grabbing the keyboard for the calendar
        self.calendar.grabKeyboard()
  
        # 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)

        value = self.calendar.mouseGrabber()
  
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Calendar Mouse grabber : " + str(value))
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
