PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Setting Minimum Date
  • Last Updated : 03 Jun, 2020

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

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

Syntax : calender.setMinimumDate(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):
        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(10, 10, 400, 250)
  
        # lower bound date
        l_date = QDate(2020, 6, 5)
  
        # setting minimum date
        calender.setMinimumDate(l_date)
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
