How to convert (DayOfWeek) to a list?

Hi

There is a (DayOfWeek) prop in .net

what I want to do is create a list based on that, can someone please help me?

also it must work with int i.e.

if I have a day with int which is set to 2 doing (DayOfWeek)item.day will show Tuesday

Hope this makes sense?

thanks

DayOfWeek is an Enum, so you can get the name from an integer using:
string name = Enum.GetName(typeof(DayOfWeek), 1);

Open in new window

HI,
Try use below code also

var UIculture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US");
var dayName = UIculture.DateTimeFormat.GetDayName(DateTime.Today.DayOfWeek);

Thanks

The great thing about enums in .NET is that when you call their ToString method, you get back the name of the member, not its value:

e.g.

string day = ((DayOfWeek)item.day).ToString();  // "day" holds "Tuesday"

Open in new window


Just make sure you are working with an instance of the enum, not the integer itself--i.e. cast it as in the above.
