In this article we will see how we can set the maximum date to the QCalendarWidget. The maximum date of QCalendarWidget restricts the user selection above the maximum date, i.e. the user can only select dates lesser than the specified maximum date. Dates above the maximum date gets disabled.

In order to do this we will use setMaximumDate method with the QCalendarWidget object.
Syntax : calendar.setMaximumDate(date)
Argument : It takes QDate 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, 600, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        calendar = QCalendarWidget(self)
        # setting geometry to the calendar
        calendar.setGeometry(10, 10, 400, 250)
        # upper bound date
        u_date = QDate(2020, 6, 15)
        # setting maximum date
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
