[ date->dayOfWeek ]


[Date->DayOfWeek] is an accessor for getting or setting the day of week field for a date object.

Getting uses no parameters and returns the day of week as an integer (1=Sunday, 7=Saturday).

Setting requires an integer parameter, and supports the =, += and -= operators. Setting modifies the date object in-place, but does not return a value.

  • Syntax
Date Object->dayofweek
Date Object->dayofweek=Integer
Date Object->dayofweek+=Integer
Date Object->dayofweek-=Integer
  • Beginner

To get or set the day of week field of a date object:

Use the [Date->DayOfWeek] method. The following example uses a single date object, then gets the day of week and returns its value.

Next we set the day of week field to a new value using the = operator, then set it again by adding 1 to the day of week using the += operator, and set it once more by subtracting 1 from the day of week using the -= operator. We return the result for each set operation.


local('d') = date('2011-02-21')
#d->dayofweek + '<br>'
#d + '<br>'
#d + '<br>'
