  • Last Updated : 04 Dec, 2020

Calendar module allows to output calendars like program, and provides additional useful functions related to the calendar. Functions and classes defined in Calendar module use an idealized calendar, the current Gregorian calendar extended indefinitely in both directions.

class calendar.TextCalendar(firstweekday=0) can be used to generate plain text calendars. formatyear() method is one of the methods of TextCalendar instance.

formatyear() method in Python is used to get m-column calendar for an entire year as a multi-line string.

Syntax: formatyear(year, width=2, lines=1, c=6, m=3)

Parameter:
year: year of the calendar
width: [optional] Specifies the width date column
line: [optional] Specifies the number of lines that each week will use.
c: [optional] Number of spaces between month columns
m: [optional] Number of months in a row



Returns: Return a m-column calendar for an entire year.

Depends on the first weekday as specified in the constructor or set by the setfirstweekday() method.

Code #1:




# Python program to demonstrate working of formatyear() method
  
# importing calendar module
import calendar
  
text_cal = calendar.TextCalendar(firstweekday = 0)
  
year = 2018
width = 4
  
# printing formatyear
print(text_cal.formatyear(year, width))


Output:

Note that the earliest year for which a calendar can be generated is platform-dependent.
 

Code #2: Since m=2, the number of month shown in a row will be 2.




# Python program to demonstrate working of formatyear() method
  
# importing calendar module
import calendar
  
text_cal = calendar.TextCalendar(firstweekday = 0)
  
  
# default value of width is 0
  
# printing formatyear
print(text_cal.formatyear(2018, 5, c = 3, m = 2))


Output:

                                        2018
