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

In this article we will see how we can implement the move event of QCalendarWidget. This event handler can be reimplemented in a subclass to receive calendar move events which are passed in the event parameter. When the calendar receives this event, it is already at the new position.

Below is the code for the Calendar class

# QCalendarWidget Class
class Calendar(QCalendarWidget):

    # constructor
    def __init__(self, parent=None):
        super(Calendar, self).__init__(parent)
        self.setMouseTracking(True)

    # override the move event
    def moveEvent(self, event):
        print("Calendar Moved")

Implementation steps:
1. Create a Calendar class that inherits the QCalendarWidget
2. Inside the Calendar class override the moveEvent 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)
        self.setMouseTracking(True)
  
    # override the move event
    def moveEvent(self, event):
        print("Calendar Moved")
  
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
  
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 500, 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 cursor
        self.calendar.setCursor(Qt.PointingHandCursor)
  
        # setting size of the calendar
        self.calendar.resize(300, 240)
  
        # move the calendar
        self.calendar.move(10, 10)
  
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())

Output :



Calendar Move
