PyQt5 QCalendarWidget – Showing Selected Date
  • Last Updated : 03 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can show the date of the QCalendarWidget to the screen. Showing the selected date will change the page if year and month are different. User can select the date with the help of mouse or keyboard and programmatically it can be set with the help of setSelectedDate method.

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

Syntax : calendar.showSelectedDate()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns 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):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        calender = QCalendarWidget(self)
  
        # setting geometry to the calender
        calender.setGeometry(10, 10, 400, 250)
  
        # creating push button
        push = QPushButton("Selected Date", self)
  
        # setting geometry to the push
        push.setGeometry(120, 280, 100, 40)
  
        # adding action to the push
        push.clicked.connect(lambda: do_action())
  
        def do_action():
            # showing the selected date
            calender.showSelectedDate()
  
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
