Detailed Description

Calendar allows selection of dates from a grid of days, similar to QCalendarWidget.

The dates on the calendar can be selected with the mouse, or navigated with the keyboard.

The selected date can be set through selectedDate. A minimum and maximum date can be set through minimumDate and maximumDate. The earliest minimum date that can be set is 1 January, 1 AD. The latest maximum date that can be set is 25 October, 275759 AD.

Calendar {
    minimumDate: new Date(2017, 0, 1)
    maximumDate: new Date(2018, 0, 1)
}

The selected date is displayed using the format in the application's default locale.

Week numbers can be displayed by setting the weekNumbersVisible property to true.

Calendar {
    weekNumbersVisible: true
}

You can create a custom appearance for Calendar by assigning a CalendarStyle.

Property Documentation

dayOfWeekFormat : int

The format in which the days of the week (in the header) are displayed.

Locale.ShortFormat is the default and recommended format, as Locale.NarrowFormat may not be fully supported by each locale (see Locale String Format Types) and Locale.LongFormat may not fit within the header cells.

The default value is true.


maximumDate : date

selectedDate : date

The date that has been selected by the user.

  • selectedDate will not be changed if undefined or some other invalid value is assigned.
  • If there are hours, minutes, seconds or milliseconds set, they will be removed.
