In this article we will see how we can set style sheet to the date edit. Setting style sheet makes the date edit look unique with the help of style sheet we can set color, border and many other things to the date edit.

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

Syntax : date.setStyleSheet(code)

Argument : It takes string as argument

Return : It returns None

Below is the sample stylesheet code

border : 2px solid black;
background-color : white;
padding : 5px;
border : 2px solid black;
background-color : lightgreen;

border : 2px solid black;
background-color : red;

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
        # setting style sheet
                           "border : 2px solid black;"
                           "background : white;"
                           "padding : 5px;"
                           "border : 2px solid black;"
                           "background-color : lightgreen;"
                           "border : 2px solid black;"
                           "background-color : red;"
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
