PyQt5 QDateEdit – Getting Maximum Date which user can enter
  • Last Updated : 07 Jul, 2020

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):
        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)
          
        # QDate object
        d = QDate(2020, 1, 1)
          
        # setting maximum date
        date.setMaximumDate(d)
          
          
        # text
        text = "Geek date edit"
          
        # setting name
        date.setAccessibleName(text)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(100, 150, 200, 60)
  
        # making label multiline
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # 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
sys.exit(App.exec())
