All of the code is organized into folders. For example, Chapter02.
The code will look like the following:
import sys from PyQt5.QtWidgets import QDialog, QApplication from demoCalendar import * class MyForm(QDialog): def __init__(self): super().__init__() self.ui = Ui_Dialog() self.ui.setupUi(self) self.ui.calendarWidget.selectionChanged.connect (self.dispdate) self.show() def dispdate(self): self.ui.dateEdit.setDate(self.ui.calendarWidget. selectedDate()) if __name__=="__main__": app = QApplication(sys.argv) w = MyForm() w.show() sys.exit(app.exec_())
Following is what you need for this book: If you’re an intermediate Python programmer wishing to enhance your coding skills by writing powerful GUIs in Python using PyQT, this is the book for you.
