PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Setting horizontal header format
  • Last Updated : 03 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set the horizontal header format of the QCalenderWidget. Horizontal header is the place in QCalenderWidget which shows the days name by default short form of days are show for example Monday is displayed as Mon, below is the horizontal header representation.

There are many formats available for the horizontal header like SingleLetterDayNames, its value is 1 and this format displays only the first letter of the days name, ShortDayNames, it is the default format, its value is 2 and this format displays only the short form of the days name. And LongDayNames its value is 3 and this format displays whole name of the days.

In order to do this we use setHorizontalHeaderFormat method with the QCalendarWidget object

Syntax : calender.setHorizontalHeaderFormat(format)



Argument : It takes Horizontal Header format as argument

Return : It returns 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, 600, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        calender = QCalendarWidget(self)
  
        # setting geometry to the calender
        calender.setGeometry(50, 50, 400, 250)
  
        # setting calender horizontal header format
        calender.setHorizontalHeaderFormat(QCalendarWidget.LongDayNames)
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
