Examples

The following example demonstrates the DateTime.DayOfWeek property and the DayOfWeek enumeration.

// This example demonstrates the DateTime.DayOfWeek property
using namespace System;
int main()
{
   
   // Assume the current culture is en-US.
   // Create a DateTime for the first of May, 2003.
   DateTime dt = DateTime(2003,5,1);
   Console::WriteLine(  "Is Thursday the day of the week for {0:d}?: {1}", dt, dt.DayOfWeek == DayOfWeek::Thursday );
   Console::WriteLine(  "The day of the week for {0:d} is {1}.", dt, dt.DayOfWeek );
}

/*
This example produces the following results:

Is Thursday the day of the week for 5/1/2003?: True
The day of the week for 5/1/2003 is Thursday.

Remarks

The DayOfWeek enumeration represents the day of the week in calendars that have seven days per week. The value of the constants in this enumeration ranges from Sunday to Saturday. If cast to an integer, its value ranges from zero (which indicates Sunday) to six (which indicates Saturday).

This enumeration is useful when it is desirable to have a strongly typed specification of the day of the week. For example, this enumeration is the type of the property value for the DateTime.DayOfWeek property.

The members of the DayOfWeek enumeration are not localized. To return the localized name of the day of the week, call the DateTime.ToString(String) or the DateTime.ToString(String, IFormatProvider) method with either the "ddd" or "dddd" format strings. The former format string produces the abbreviated weekday name; the latter produces the full weekday name.
