PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Setting Tablet Tracking Property

Last Updated : 31 Jan, 2022

In this article we will see how we can set the tablet tracking property to the QCalendarWidget. If tablet tracking is disabled (the default), the calendar only receives tablet move events when the stylus is in contact with the tablet, or at least one stylus button is pressed, while the stylus is being moved. If tablet tracking is enabled, the calendar receives tablet move events even while hovering in proximity. This is useful for monitoring position as well as the auxiliary properties such as rotation and tilt, and providing feedback in the UI.

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

Syntax : calendar.setTabletTracking(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 calendar
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
        # setting cursor
        # enabling tablet tracking
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
