PyQt5 QDateTimeEdit – Getting minimum QDateTime
  • Last Updated : 14 Jul, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the minimum QDateTime of the QDateTimeEdit widget. QDateTime is basically a combination of QDate and QTime i.e it has both date and time. And QDateTimeEdit widget is used to show or receive the QDateTime. We can set date time to it with the help of setDateTime. By setting minimum value of it make sure that user will not be allowed to enter date time below the minimum date time, it can be set with the help of setMinimumDateTime method.

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

Syntax : datetimeedit.minimumDateTime()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns QDateTime object



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)
  
        # date time
        dt = QDateTime(2020, 10, 10, 11, 30)
  
        # setting minimum date time to it
        datetimeedit.setMinimumDateTime(dt)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 160, 200, 60)
  
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting minimum date time
        value = datetimeedit.minimumDateTime()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Min Date Time : " + str(value))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
