PyQt5 QDateEdit – Getting Style Sheet

In this article we will see how we can get the style sheet to the date edit. Setting style sheet makes the date edit look unique with the help of style sheet we can set color, border and many other things to the date edit. We can set style sheet with the help of setStyleSheet method.

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

Syntax : date.styleSheet()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns string

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
        # setting style sheet
                           "border : 2px solid black;"
                           "background : white;"
                           "padding : 5px;"
                           "border : 2px solid black;"
                           "background-color : lightgreen;"
                           "border : 2px solid black;"
                           "background-color : red;"
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(100, 150, 250, 60)
        # making label multiline
        # getting style sheet
        value = date.styleSheet()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Style Sheet : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
