In this article we will see how we can increment i.e step up the date of the QDateEdit. Stepping update means to increment the date, it increments the current selected section i.e day, month or year. Up arrow buttons performs same action although we can remove that button and make our own button. In order to do this we use stepUp method with the QDateEdit object

Syntax : date.stepUp() Argument : It takes no argument Return : It returns None

Below is the implementation 

Python3




# 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)
 
        # removing buttons
        date.setButtonSymbols(2)
 
        # setting geometry of the date edit
        date.setGeometry(100, 100, 150, 40)
 
        # creating a label
        push = QPushButton("Step Up", self)
 
        # setting geometry of the push button
        push.setGeometry(100, 170, 100, 30)
 
        # adding action to the push button when it get clicked
        push.clicked.connect(lambda: push_method())
 
        # method called by the push button
        def push_method():
 
            # stepping up the date
            date.stepUp()
 
 
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
 
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
 
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
