Report issue

In this article we will see how we can set the fixed size to the QCalendarWidget. Fixed size of the calendar is that size after which it can’t expand or shrink any further, by default when we create a calendar inside the layout and when the window get extended or shrinks calendar size also increases and shrinks, therefore, there is need to set the fixed size. We can individually set fixed width and height with the help of setFixedWidth and setFixedHeight method respectively.

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

Syntax : calendar.setFixedSize(size) 

Argument : It takes QSize 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):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 500, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a layout
        layout = QVBoxLayout()
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        # as Calendar class inherits QCalendarWidget
        self.calendar = Calendar(self)
        # setting cursor
        # adding calendar to the layout
        # setting fixed size
        self.calendar.setFixedSize(QSize(400, 300))
        # setting layout
        widget = QWidget()
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
