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

                           "background-color : red;"
                           "}"
                           )
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
