In this article we will see how we can get special date time text of the QDateTimeEdit widget. By setting special text with the help of setSpecialValueText method, the QDateTimeEdit display this special text instead of a date time value whenever the current value is equal to minimum date time.

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

Syntax : datetimeedit.specialValueText()

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):
        # 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 QDateTimeEdit widget
        datetimeedit = QDateTimeEdit(self)
        # setting geometry
        datetimeedit.setGeometry(100, 100, 150, 35)
        # minimum date time
        min_dt = QDateTime(2020, 10, 10, 11, 30)
        # setting minimum date time
        # text
        text = "GfG Date Time"
        # setting special text to the date time edit
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 160, 200, 60)
        # making label multi line
        # getting special text
        value = datetimeedit.specialValueText()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Special Text : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
