Are you looking for numbers between the two dates or a date?  I am confused on what your trying to do.

Week number as in, the first week of January is week one, and the last week of December is week 52? Or do you mean just how many weeks are between two given dates?

If I select current date i.e 05/19/2009. So between 1 to 52 weeks in a year what is the position of currentdate?  Is that good enough? Thanks.

I guess that'll work, though I don't see the point of the other two dates there. This should be fairly simple:

``````public System.Int32 GetWeekNumber(System.DateTime myDate)
{
System.Int32 weekNumber = myDate.DayOfYear / 7
return (weekNumber == 0) ? weekNumber + 1 : weekNumber;
}
``````

public Int32 WeekOfYear(DateTime dtInput)
{
DateTime d1 = new DateTime(dtInput.Year, 01, 01);
Int32 nCt = d1.DayOfWeek == DayOfWeek.Sunday ? 0 : 1;
Boolean blFnd = false;
while (d1.Year == dtInput.Year && blFnd == false)
{
if (d1.DayOfWeek == DayOfWeek.Sunday)
{
nCt++;
}
if (d1.Date == dtInput.Date )
{
blFnd = true;
}
else
{
}
}
return nCt;
}

The accepted solution may not be accurate as the first week of any given year does not always have 7 days.   For example the first week this year only had 4 days.  Todays date is in the 21st calander week of the year but there has only been 19 full 7 day weeks.

I guess it depends on what you are looking for.... good luck.

The System.DateTime object should take care of any inconsistencies like that. Try the following code, for example; it even takes care of leap years and such. If I am wrong, and this solution isn't exactly what you're looking for, let me know.
``````for (int i = 1990; i < 2010; i++)
{
Console.WriteLine("DayOfYear: {0}", new DateTime(i, 12, 30).DayOfYear);
}
``````
