In this article we will see how we can get time to the QDateEdit. Unlike normal like date we can set date time to it with the help of setDate method. But also we can set only time as well without changing the date with the help of setTime method.

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

Syntax : date.time()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns QTime 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, 150, 40)
  
        # date time
        time = QTime(11, 30, 0)
  
        # setting time
        date.setTime(time)
  
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(100, 150, 200, 60)
  
        # making label multiline
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting time
        value = date.time()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("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())
