PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Setting Mouse Tracking Property

  • Last Updated : 10 Jun, 2020
Geek Week

In this article we will see how we can set mouse tracking property to the QCalendarWidget. If mouse tracking is disabled (the default), the calendar will only receive mouse move events when at least one mouse button is pressed while the mouse is being moved. If mouse tracking is enabled, the calendar will receive mouse move events even if no buttons are pressed.

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

Syntax : calendar.setMouseTracking(True)

Argument : It takes bool 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):
        # 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
        self.calendar = QCalendarWidget(self)
        # setting geometry to the calender
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
        # setting cursor
        # enabling mouse tracking
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
