Source File

#include <QCalendarWidget>
#include <QApplication>
#include <QPushButton>
#include <QVBoxLayout>
#include <QWidget>
#include <QWindowsStyle>
int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
QApplication app(argc, argv);
QWidget *win = new QWidget;
QVBoxLayout *layout = new QVBoxLayout;
QPushButton *nextyrbutton = new QPushButton("Next Year");
QPushButton *prevyrbutton = new QPushButton("Prev Year");
QCalendarWidget *calendar = new QCalendarWidget;
QObject::connect(nextyrbutton,SIGNAL(clicked()),calendar,SLOT(showNextYear()));
QObject::connect(prevyrbutton,SIGNAL(clicked()),calendar,SLOT(showPreviousYear()));
layout->addWidget(calendar);
layout->addWidget(prevyrbutton);
layout->addWidget(nextyrbutton);
calendar->setGridVisible(true);
win->setLayout(layout);
win->showNormal();
 
return app.exec();
}
  • In the above example only two function for displaying next and previous year are used but there are many other function like showNextMonth,show PreviousMonth,showToday etc...
