PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Setting Maximum Size
  • Last Updated : 17 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set the maximum size to the QCalendarWidget. Maximum size of the calendar is that size after which it can’t be expanded 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 maximum size. We can individually set maximum width and height with the help of setMaximumWidth and setMaximumHeight method respectively.

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

Syntax : calendar.setMaximumSize(size)

Argument : It takes QSize object as argument

Return : It return None



Below is the implementation

        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        # as Calendar class inherits QCalendarWidget
        self.calendar = Calendar(self)
  
        # setting cursor

App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())

Output :

When we try to expand the window calendar size did not expand when maximum size reached
