PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Override the Window Flags
  • Last Updated : 17 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can override the window flags of the QCalendarWidget. In order to do this we use overrideWindowFlags method, this method sets the window flags for the calendar to flags, without telling the window system.

Warning : Do not call this function unless you really know what you’re doing.

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

Syntax : calendar.overrideWindowFlags(flag)

Argument : It takes window flag object 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, 500, 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 cursor
        self.calendar.setCursor(Qt.PointingHandCursor)
  
        # setting size of the calendar
        self.calendar.resize(300, 240)
  
        # move the calendar
        self.calendar.move(10, 10)
  
        # setting override windows flag
        self.calendar.overrideWindowFlags(Qt.SplashScreen)
  
        
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
