In this article we will see how we can assign a description to the QDateEdit. Description property holds the date edit’s description as seen by assistive technologies. The accessible description of a date edit should convey what date edit does. While the accessible name should be a short and concise string (e.g. Office Date), the description should give more context, such as Saves the selected date. It can be set with the help of setAccessibleDescription method.

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

Syntax : date.accessibleDescription(text)

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns string

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, 500, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a QDateEdit widget
        date = QDateEdit(self)
        # setting geometry of the date edit
        date.setGeometry(100, 100, 200, 40)
        # alignment
        a_flag = Qt.AlignCenter
        # setting alignment of date
        # text
        text = "Allow user to set date"
        # setting description
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(100, 150, 200, 60)
        # making label multiline
        # getting description
        value = date.accessibleDescription()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Description : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
