PyQt5 QDateEdit – Selecting Whole Date

  • Last Updated : 07 Jul, 2020

In this article we will see how we can select the whole date of the QDateEdit. User can set a date to the date edit with the help of cursor and the keyboard. Selecting date means the text of the date, selecting date is used for copying or overwriting the text of date edit.

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

Syntax : date.selectAll()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns None



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)
  
        # creating push button
        push = QPushButton("Select", self)
  
        # setting geometry to the push button
        push.setGeometry(100, 150, 120, 30)
  
        # adding action to the push button
        # when it get clicked
        push.clicked.connect(lambda: push_method())
  
        # method called by push button
        def push_method():
  
            # selecting text
            date.selectAll()
  
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
