PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Setting Date Edit (Pop-Up) Accept Delay Property

  • Last Updated : 19 Jul, 2021

In this article, we will see how we can set/change the date edit accept delay property of the QCalendarWidget. This property holds the time an inactive date edit is shown before its contents are accepted. If the calendar widget’s date edit is enabled, this property specifies the amount of time (in milliseconds) that the date edit remains open after the most recent user input. Once this time has elapsed, the date specified in the date edit is accepted and the popup is closed. By default, the delay is defined to be 1500 milliseconds (1.5 seconds).

The date edit pop-up appear when we try to select using a keyboard, the lesser the value of delay pop-will get closed more quickly

In order to do this we will use setDateEditAcceptDelay method with the QCalendarWidget object.
Syntax : calendar.setDateEditAcceptDelay(n)
Argument : It takes integer 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
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 650, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # 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
        # removing special cursor
        # setting accept delay value
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
