PyQt5 QDateEdit – Getting Correction Mode
  • Last Updated : 03 Jul, 2020

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 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):
        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)
  
        # setting correction mode
        date.setCorrectionMode(0)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(100, 150, 200, 60)
  
        # making label multiline
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # 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
sys.exit(App.exec())
