In this article we will see how we can set display format of date to 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.

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

Syntax : datetimeedit.setDisplayFormat(format)

Argument : It takes string 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):
        # 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 format
        datetimeedit.setDisplayFormat("dd MMM yyyy")
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 200, 300, 80)
        # making label multi line
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
