PyQt5 QDateEdit – Finished Signal
  • Last Updated : 03 Jul, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the finished signal of the QDateEdit. This signal is emitted editing is finished. This happens when the date edit loses focus and when enter is pressed. This signal is very important as it takes place only when the editing is finished, unlike other signals which get many time in small interval of time.

In order to do this we use editingFinished method with the QDateEdit object

Syntax : date.editingFinished.connect(method)

Argument : It takes method as 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, 500, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
          
        # creating a QDateEdit widget
        date = QDateEdit(self)
  
        # setting geometry of the date edit
        date.setGeometry(100, 100, 150, 40)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(100, 150, 200, 60)
  
        # making label multiline
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting finished signal
        date.editingFinished.connect(lambda: date_method())
  
        # method called by date edit
        def date_method():
  
            # setting text to the label
            label.setText("Finished Signal Emitted")
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
