In this article we will see how we can implement the mouse move event for the QCalendarWidget. This event handler, for event event, can be reimplemented in a subclass to receive mouse move events for the widget. If mouse tracking is switched off, mouse move events only occur if a mouse button is pressed while the mouse is being moved. If mouse tracking is switched on, mouse move events occur even if no mouse button is pressed.

Implementation steps: 
1. Create a Calendar class that inherits the QCalendarWidget 
2. Create alabel to show the updates 
3. Override the mouseMoveEvent and set the position to the label 
4. Create a Calendar object inside the main window 
5. Set various properties to the calendar 

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
# QCalendarWidget Class
class Calendar(QCalendarWidget):
    # constructor
    def __init__(self, parent = None):
        super(Calendar, self).__init__(parent)
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 650, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        # as Calendar class inherits QCalendarWidget
        self.calendar = Calendar(self)
        # turing on the mouse tracking
        # setting geometry to the calendar
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 250, 250)
        # setting cursor
        # creating label to show the properties
        self.label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        self.label.setGeometry(100, 280, 250, 60)
        # making label multi line
    def mouseMoveEvent(self, event):
        self.label.setText('coords: ( % d : % d )' % (event.x(), event.y()))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
