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

In this article we will see how we can set time range to the QDateEdit. Sometimes there is a need to set time range so that user can’t enter/store time which are beyond the time range. We can set time to date edit with the help of setTime method. Minimum and maximum time can be set to the date edit with the help of setMinimumTime and setMaximumTime method.

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

Syntax : date.setTimeRange(t1, t2)

Argument : It takes two QTime 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, 200, 40)
  
        # alignment
        a_flag = Qt.AlignCenter
  
        # setting alignment of date
        date.setAlignment(a_flag)
  
        # QTime object
        t1 = QTime(1, 30)
        t2 = QTime(5, 45)
  
        # setting minimum time
        date.setTimeRange(t1, t2)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry
        label.setGeometry(100, 150, 250, 60)
  
        # making label multiline
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting time
        value1 = date.minimumTime()
        value2 = date.maximumTime()
  
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Min and Max Time : " + str(value1) + " " + str(value2))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
