Description

The gtk.Calendar is a widget that displays a simple calendar, one month at a time. In addition, the calendar can display the days of the week and navigation controls that allow a user to change the month and year displayed by calling the display_options() (set_display_options() in PyGTK 2.4 and above) method. The possible display options are:

gtk.CALENDAR_SHOW_HEADING

Specifies that the month and year should be displayed.

gtk.CALENDAR_SHOW_DAY_NAMES

Specifies that three letter day descriptions should be present.

gtk.CALENDAR_NO_MONTH_CHANGE

Prevents the user from switching months with the calendar.

gtk.CALENDAR_SHOW_WEEK_NUMBERS

Displays each week numbers of the current year, down the left side of the calendar.

gtk.CALENDAR_WEEK_START_MONDAY

Starts the calendar week on Monday, instead of the default Sunday.

The month and year currently displayed are programatically changed by calling the select_month() method. The exact day is selected from the displayed month using the select_day() method.

To place a visual marker on a particular day, use the mark_day() method and to remove the marker, the unmark_day() method. All marks are cleared by calling the clear_marks() method.

The selected date can be retrieved from a gtk.Calendar using the get_date() method. If performing many 'mark' operations, the calendar can be frozen to prevent flicker, using the freeze() method, and 'thawed' again using the thaw() method.

Note

Note that month is zero-based (i.e it allowed values are 0-11) while selected_day is one-based (i.e. allowed values are 1-31).

Constructor

    gtk.Calendar()

Returns :

a calendar object

Creates a calendar object that displays the current month and year with the current day selected. The default calendar display style is: gtk.CALENDAR_SHOW_HEADING | gtk.CALENDAR_SHOW_DAY_NAMES that shows the days of the week and the month and year heading with navigation controls.

Methods

gtk.Calendar.select_month

    def select_month(month, year)

month :

the new month number between 0 and 11

year :

the new year number

Returns :

True if the month is set

The select_month() method changes the calendar display to the specified month and year.

gtk.Calendar.select_day

    def select_day(day)

day :

the new day number between 1 and 31 - 0 removes the current selection

The select_day() method selects the specified day on the calendar when day has a value between 1 and 31. If day is 0 then the current day selection is removed.

gtk.Calendar.mark_day

    def mark_day(day)

day :

the number of the day to be marked

Returns :

True

The mark_day() method marks the specified month day with a visual marker (typically by making the number bold). If the calendar month and year are changed the marked days remain marked.

gtk.Calendar.unmark_day

    def unmark_day(day)

day :

the number of the day to be unmarked

Returns :

True

The unmark_day() method unmarks the specified month day.

gtk.Calendar.clear_marks

    def clear_marks()

The clear_marks() method clears all marked days.

gtk.Calendar.get_display_options

    def get_display_options()

Returns :

the calendar display options

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The get_display_options() method returns the current calendar display options. See the set_display_options() method for more information.

gtk.Calendar.set_display_options

    def set_display_options(flags)

flags :

the new calendar display options

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The set_display_options() method sets the calendar display options to the value specified by flags. The possible display options are a combination of:

gtk.CALENDAR_SHOW_HEADING

Specifies that the month and year should be displayed.

gtk.CALENDAR_SHOW_DAY_NAMES

Specifies that three letter day descriptions should be present.

gtk.CALENDAR_NO_MONTH_CHANGE

Prevents the user from switching months with the calendar.

gtk.CALENDAR_SHOW_WEEK_NUMBERS

Displays each week numbers of the current year, down the left side of the calendar.

gtk.CALENDAR_WEEK_START_MONDAY

Starts the calendar week on Monday, instead of the default Sunday.

The display options can be removed by passing 0 as the value of flags.

gtk.Calendar.get_detail_height_rows

    def get_detail_height_rows()

Returns :

The height of detail cells, in rows.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.14 and above.

The get_detail_height_rows() method queries the height of detail cells, in rows. See the "detail-width-chars" property.

gtk.Calendar.set_detail_height_rows

    def set_detail_height_rows(rows)

rows :

detail height in rows.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.14 and above.

The set_detail_height_rows() method updates the height of detail cells. See the "detail-height-rows" property.

gtk.Calendar.get_detail_width_chars

    def get_detail_width_chars()

Returns :

The width of detail cells, in characters.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.14 and above.

The get_detail_width_chars() method queries the width of detail cells, in characters. See the "detail-width-chars" property.

gtk.Calendar.set_detail_width_chars

    def set_detail_width_chars(chars)

chars :

detail width in characters.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.14 and above.

The set_detail_width_chars() method updates the width of detail cells. See the "detail-width-chars" property.

gtk.Calendar.display_options

    def display_options(flags)

flags :

the new calendar display options

Warning

This method is deprecated in PyGTK 2.4 and should be replaced by the set_display_options() method.

The display_options() method sets the calendar display options to the value specified by flags. The possible display options are a combination of:

gtk.CALENDAR_SHOW_HEADING

Specifies that the month and year should be displayed.

gtk.CALENDAR_SHOW_DAY_NAMES

Specifies that three letter day descriptions should be present.

gtk.CALENDAR_NO_MONTH_CHANGE

Prevents the user from switching months with the calendar.

gtk.CALENDAR_SHOW_WEEK_NUMBERS

Displays each week numbers of the current year, down the left side of the calendar.

gtk.CALENDAR_WEEK_START_MONDAY

Starts the calendar week on Monday, instead of the default Sunday.

The display options can be removed by passing 0 as the value of flags.

gtk.Calendar.get_date

    def get_date()

Returns :

a tuple containing the year, month and day

The get_date() method retrieves the calendar's current year, month and selected day numbers as a tuple (year, month, day).

Note

Note that month is zero-based (i.e it allowed values are 0-11) while selected_day is one-based (i.e. allowed values are 1-31).

gtk.Calendar.freeze

    def freeze()

The freeze() method stops the update of the calendar display until the thaw() method is called. This method is used to reduce calendar flicker when doing a large number of updates to the calendar.

gtk.Calendar.thaw

    def thaw()

The thaw() method reenables the update of the calendar after a freeze() method is called. All changes made since the last freeze() are displayed
