In this article we will see how we can set current section in the QDateTimeEdit widget programmatically. 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.

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

Syntax : datetimeedit.setCurrentSection(section)

Argument : It takes section object as 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):
        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 push button
        push = QPushButton("Press", self)
  
        # setting geometry to the push button
        push.setGeometry(120, 160, 120, 35)
  
        # when push button get clicked connect to the method
        push.clicked.connect(lambda: push_method())
  
        def push_method():
  
            # set the current section
            datetimeedit.setCurrentSection(QDateTimeEdit.MonthSection)
  
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
