In this article we will see how we can get select both the date and time text of 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. Selected text can be used for coping or removing.
In order to do this we will use selectAll method with the QDateTimeEdit object. 

Syntax : datetimeedit.selectAll()
Argument : It takes no 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):
        # 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)
        # setting date time to it
        datetimeedit.setDateTime(QDateTime(2020, 10, 10, 11, 30))
        # time
        time = QTime(21, 45)
        # setting only time
        # creating a push button
        push = QPushButton("Select All", self)
        # setting geometry of the push button
        push.setGeometry(100, 150, 120, 30)
        # adding action to the push button
        # selecting all the text
        push.clicked.connect(lambda: datetimeedit.selectAll())
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
