PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Removing memory reference

  • Last Updated : 04 Jul, 2021

In this article, we will see how we can get delete the reference of the QCalendarWidget. Removing the last Python reference of the calendar object won’t be enough to fully clean up, because there could still be a reference held on the Qt side. In general, Qt tends not to implicitly delete objects. So there may be a need to take steps to delete them explicitly if memory usage is a concern.
 

In order to do this we will use deleteLater method with the QCalendarWidget object.
Syntax : calendar.deleteLater()
Argument : It takes no argument
Return : It returns None 
 

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, 600, 400)
 
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
 
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
 
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
 
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        calendar = QCalendarWidget(self)
 
        # setting geometry to the calendar
        calendar.setGeometry(10, 10, 400, 250)
 
        # deleting the memory reference explicitly
        calendar.deleteLater()
 
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
 
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 280, 250, 60)
 
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
 
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Calendar is deleted")
 
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
 
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
 
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())

Output :
