PyQt5 QDateEdit – Getting Button Symbols

In this article we will see how we can get the button symbols of the QDateEdit. The date edit can two arrow buttons used for incrementing and decrementing the date, We can remove the buttons with the help of setButtonSymbols method and even after removing buttons there is no major effect on the functionality of the date edit.

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

Syntax : date.buttonSymbols()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns button symbol object but when printed it shows the corresponding value of it

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, 150, 40)
        # removing button
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(100, 150, 200, 60)
        # making label multiline
        # getting button symbol
        value = date.buttonSymbols()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Button Symbol : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
