In this article we will see how we can get current section of the QDateTimeEdit widget. There are many sections in the QDateTimeedit widget like, year, month, hour, minute section. User can select any section with the help of mouse or keyboard and increment and decrement action get performed on the current section. We can set current section programmatically with the help of setCurrentSection method.

In order to do this we will use currentSection method with the QDateTimeEdit object.

Syntax : datetimeedit.currentSection()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns section object but when printed it shows the associated value with it

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 QDateTimeEdit widget
        datetimeedit = QDateTimeEdit(self)
  
        # setting geometry
        datetimeedit.setGeometry(100, 100, 150, 35)
  
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 200, 200, 60)
  
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
          
        # getting current section
        value = datetimeedit.currentSection()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Section : " + str(value))
  
         
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
