In this article we will see how we can get the maximum date to the QDateEdit. Sometimes there is a need to set maximum date so that user can’t enter date which is beyond the maximum date for example when user is asked to enter date of birth, user should not be allowed to enter future date then need for setting maximum date arises. Maximum date can be set with the help of setMaximumDate method.

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

Syntax : date.maximumDate(date)

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns QDate 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):
        # 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, 200, 40)
        # alignment
        a_flag = Qt.AlignCenter
        # setting alignment of date
        # QDate object
        d = QDate(2020, 1, 1)
        # setting maximum date
        # text
        text = "Geek date edit"
        # setting name
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(100, 150, 200, 60)
        # making label multiline
        # getting maximum date
        value = date.maximumDate()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Max Date : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
