In this article, we will see how we can get the foreground role of the QCalendarWidget. There are basically two types of roles in the calendar one is foreground and the other one is background. The foreground role defines the color from the calendar’s palette that is used to draw the foreground. If no explicit foreground role is set, the foreground returns a role that contrasts with the background role. We can set the foreground role with the help of setForegroundRole method.

In order to do this we will use foregroundRole method with the QCalendarWidget object.
Syntax : calendar.foregroundRole()
Argument : It takes no argument
Return : It return QPalette.ColorRole object but when printed it shows the value associated with the role 

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, 650, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        self.calendar = QCalendarWidget(self)
        # setting geometry to the calendar
        self.calendar.setGeometry(50, 10, 400, 250)
        # setting cursor
        # setting foreground role
        # getting palette and setting color to the background to it
        p = self.calendar.palette()
        p.setColor(self.calendar.foregroundRole(), Qt.darkGray)
        # creating label to show the properties
        self.label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        self.label.setGeometry(100, 280, 250, 60)
        # making label multi line
        # getting foreground role
        value = self.calendar.foregroundRole()
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Fore ground role : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
