In this article we will see how we can set date time to the QDateEdit. User can set date to the date edit with the help of cursor and the keyboard but sometimes there is a need of setting initial date or date programmatically for showing date in the records, which can be done with the help of setDate method. Unlike normal date, date-time has date as well as the time although time is not shown on the date edit.

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

Syntax : date.setDateTime(d)

Argument : It takes QDateTime object as 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)
  
        # date time
        d = QDateTime(2020, 10, 10, 10, 20)
  
        # setting date time
        date.setDateTime(d)
  
  
          
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
