In this article we will see how we can set special date-time text to the QDateTimeEdit widget. By setting special text, 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 setSpecialValueText method with the QDateTimeEdit object.

Syntax : datetimeedit.setSpecialValueText(text)

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)
        # 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
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
