PyQt5 QDateEdit – Setting Minimum Date Time which can be set
  • Last Updated : 07 Jul, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set minimum date time to the QDateEdit. Sometimes there is a need to set minimum date time so that user can’t enter date time which are beyond the minimum date time. We can set date time to date edit with the help of setDateTime method.

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

Syntax : date.setMinimumDateTime(date_time)

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):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 500, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # 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
        # QDate object
        d = QDateTime(2020, 1, 1, 10, 30)
        # setting minimum date time
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
