PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Setting Graphics effect
  • Last Updated : 09 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set graphic effect to the QCalendarWidget. A graphic effect is an effect that can be used on a sprite or the Stage, changing their look in some way. Graphic effect can be color shadow any thing.

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

Syntax : calendar.setGraphicsEffect(effect)

Argument : It takes QGraphicEffect object as argument

Return : It return None



Note : This function will apply the effect on calendar itself and all its children.

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.calendar = QCalendarWidget(self)
  
        # setting geometry to the calender
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
  
        # setting cursor
        self.calendar.setCursor(Qt.PointingHandCursor)
  
        # creating a color graphic effect
        color = QGraphicsColorizeEffect()
        color.setColor(Qt.green)
  
        # setting graphics to the calendar
        self.calendar.setGraphicsEffect(color)
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
