PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Setting First Day of Week
  • Last Updated : 09 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set the first day of the week to the QCalendarWidget. When we create a calendar by default first day of the week is Monday although we can change this any time, days are displayed in the first column of the calendar.

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

Syntax : calendar.setFirstDayOfWeek(Qt.Wednesday)

Argument : It takes day 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
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.calender = QCalendarWidget(self)
        # setting geometry to the calender
        self.calender.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
        # setting cursor
        # setting first day of week
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
