PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Setting Foreground Role

  • Last Updated : 09 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set the foreground role to the QCalendarWidget. There are basically two types of roles in calendar one is foreground and the other one is background. The foreground role defines the color from the calendar’s palette that is used to draw the foreground. If no explicit foreground role is set, the foreground returns a role that contrasts with the background role.

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

Syntax : calendar.setForegroundRole(color_object)

Argument : It takes QPalette.ColorRole object 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):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 650, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # 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
        self.calender.setCursor(Qt.PointingHandCursor)
  
        # setting foreground role
        self.calender.setForegroundRole(QPalette.Base)
  
        # getting palette and setting color to the background to it
        p = self.calender.palette()
        p.setColor(self.calender.foregroundRole(), Qt.darkGray)
        self.calender.setPalette(p)
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
