Report issue

In this article we will see how we can get the correction mode to the QDateEdit. In date edit correction is very important so that user can’t enter invalid date for example if user try to enter the month value greater than 12 the current value goes back the previous valid value. In order to set the correction mode we use setCorrectionMode method, there are basically two correction modes for date edit given below 

CorrectToPreviousValue : The date edit will revert to the last valid value its associated value is 0 

CorrectToNearestValue : The date edit will revert to the nearest valid value, its associated value is 1 In order to do this we use correctionMode method with the QDateEdit object

Syntax : date.correctionMode() 

Argument : It takes no argument 

Return : It returns correction mode object but when printed it shows the value associated with 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)
        # setting correction mode
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(100, 150, 200, 60)
        # making label multiline
        # getting correction mode
        value = date.correctionMode()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Correction Mode : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
