PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Setting Mouse Press Event
  • Last Updated : 17 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can implement the mouse press event for the QCalendarWidget. This event handler, for event, can be reimplemented in a subclass to receive mouse press events for the calendar. The default implementation implements the closing of popup widgets when you click outside the window. For other widget types it does nothing.

Below is the Calendar class code

# QCalendarWidget Class
class Calendar(QCalendarWidget):
    
    # constructor
    def __init__(self, parent=None):
        super(Calendar, self).__init__(parent)

    # overriding the mousePressEvent method
    def mousePressEvent(self, event):
        print("Mouse Press Event")

Implementation steps:
1. Create a Calendar class that inherits the QCalendarWidget
2. Inside the Calendar class override the mousePressEvent and inside the event print the text
3. Create a main window class
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)
  
    # overriding the mousePressEvent method
    def mousePressEvent(self, event):
        print("Mouse Press Event")
  
  
  
  
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
  
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 650, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        # as Calendar class inherits QCalendarWidget
        self.calendar = Calendar(self)
  
        # setting geometry to the calender
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
  
        # setting cursor
        self.calendar.setCursor(Qt.PointingHandCursor)
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())

Output :

Mouse Press Event
Mouse Press Event
Mouse Press Event
Mouse Press Event
Mouse Press Event
