  • Last Updated : 25 May, 2021

In this article we will see how we can get the input date of the QDateEdit. User can set date to the date edit with the help of cursor and the keyboard but sometimes there is a need of setting initial date or date programmatically for showing date in the records, which can be done with the help of setDate method.
In order to do this we use date method with the QDateEdit object 
 

Syntax : date.date()
Argument : It takes no argument
Return : It returns QDate object 
 

Below is the implementation 
 

Python3




# 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)
         
        # date
        d = QDate(2020, 6, 10)
 
        # setting date to the date edit
        date.setDate(d)
         
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
 
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(100, 150, 200, 60)
 
        # making label multiline
        label.setWordWrap(True)
         
        # getting current date
        value = date.date()
         
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Date : " + str(value))
 
 
 
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
 
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
 
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())

Output :
