PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Setting Mouse Press Event
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")
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
