PyQt5 QDateTimeEdit – Getting Display format
  • Last Updated : 14 Jul, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get display format of the QDateTimeEdit. Display format property holds the format used to display the time/date of the date-time edit. By default we see date in format like 01-01-2000 although by setting display format we can make this date as 1 Jan 2020, it can be set with the help of setDisplayFormat method.

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

Syntax : datetimeedit.displayFormat()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns string



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, 300, 80)
  
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting display format
        value = datetimeedit.displayFormat()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Display Format : " + value)
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
