In this article we will see how we can get the minimum date-time of the QDateEdit. Sometimes there is a need to set minimum date time so that user can’t enter date time which are beyond the minimum date time. We can set date time to date edit with the help of setDateTime method. Minimum date-time can be set to the date edit with the help of setMinimumDateTime method.

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

Syntax : date.minimumDateTime()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns QDateTime 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 = QDateTime(2020, 1, 1, 10, 30)
  
        # setting minimum date time
        date.setMinimumDateTime(d)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(100, 150, 200, 60)
  
        # making label multiline
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting minimum date time
        value = date.minimumDateTime()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Min Date Time : " + str(value))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
