In this article we will see how we can get the date alignment of the QDateEdit. By default, the text is aligned on the left hand side although by changing the alignment we can make the date appear in the center with the help of setAlignment method. Changing alignment does not effect the functionality of the date edit. In order to do this we use alignment method with the QDateEdit object
Syntax : date.alignment() Argument : It takes no argument Return : It returns Alignment flag object
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, 200, 40)
  
        # alignment
        a_flag = Qt.AlignCenter
  
        # setting alignment of date
        date.setAlignment(a_flag)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(100, 150, 200, 60)
  
        # making label multiline
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting alignment
        value = date.alignment()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Alignment : " + str(value))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
