# QCalendarWidget Class class Calendar(QCalendarWidget): # constructor def __init__(self, parent=None): super(Calendar, self).__init__(parent) # overriding the timer event # this will show the next month def timerEvent(self, event): # show the next month window.calendar.showNextMonth()
1. Create a Calendar class that inherits the QCalendarWidget
2. Inside the Calendar class override the timerEvent and inside the event show the next month of calendar
3. Create a main window class
4. Create a Calendar object inside the main window
5. Set various properties to the calendar
