In this article we will see how we can set the date range to the QDateEdit. Date range means that user can only enter that date which lies within the set range. Sometimes there is a need to set date range for example when user is asked to select the date for meeting within 10 days then need of setting range arises. Individually we can set minimum and maximum date with the help of setMinimumDate and setMaximumDate methods respectively.

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

Syntax : date.setDateRange(min, max)

Argument : It takes two QDate object as argument 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, 200, 40)
  
        # alignment
        a_flag = Qt.AlignCenter
  
        # setting alignment of date
        date.setAlignment(a_flag)
  
        # QDate object
        d1 = QDate(2020, 10, 10)
        d2 = QDate(2020, 10, 20)
  
        # setting date range
        date.setDateRange(d1, d2)
  
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
