DayOfWeek

public final enum DayOfWeek
extends Enum<DayOfWeek> implements TemporalAccessor, TemporalAdjuster

java.lang.Object
   ↳ java.lang.Enum<java.time.DayOfWeek>
     ↳ java.time.DayOfWeek


A day-of-week, such as 'Tuesday'.

DayOfWeek is an enum representing the 7 days of the week - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

In addition to the textual enum name, each day-of-week has an int value. The int value follows the ISO-8601 standard, from 1 (Monday) to 7 (Sunday). It is recommended that applications use the enum rather than the int value to ensure code clarity.

This enum provides access to the localized textual form of the day-of-week. Some locales also assign different numeric values to the days, declaring Sunday to have the value 1, however this class provides no support for this. See WeekFields for localized week-numbering.

Do not use ordinal() to obtain the numeric representation of DayOfWeek. Use getValue() instead.

This enum represents a common concept that is found in many calendar systems. As such, this enum may be used by any calendar system that has the day-of-week concept defined exactly equivalent to the ISO calendar system.

Public methods

adjustInto

added in API level 26
public Temporal adjustInto (Temporal temporal)

Adjusts the specified temporal object to have this day-of-week.

This returns a temporal object of the same observable type as the input with the day-of-week changed to be the same as this.

The adjustment is equivalent to using Temporal.with(TemporalField, long) passing ChronoField.DAY_OF_WEEK as the field. Note that this adjusts forwards or backwards within a Monday to Sunday week. See WeekFields.dayOfWeek() for localized week start days. See TemporalAdjuster for other adjusters with more control, such as next(MONDAY).

In most cases, it is clearer to reverse the calling pattern by using Temporal.with(TemporalAdjuster):

   // these two lines are equivalent, but the second approach is recommended
   temporal = thisDayOfWeek.adjustInto(temporal);
   temporal = temporal.with(thisDayOfWeek);
 

For example, given a date that is a Wednesday, the following are output:

   dateOnWed.with(MONDAY);     // two days earlier
   dateOnWed.with(TUESDAY);    // one day earlier
   dateOnWed.with(WEDNESDAY);  // same date
   dateOnWed.with(THURSDAY);   // one day later
   dateOnWed.with(FRIDAY);     // two days later
   dateOnWed.with(SATURDAY);   // three days later
   dateOnWed.with(SUNDAY);     // four days later
 

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
temporal Temporal: the target object to be adjusted, not null

Returns
Temporal the adjusted object, not null

Throws
DateTimeException if unable to make the adjustment
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs

from

added in API level 26
public static DayOfWeek from (TemporalAccessor temporal)

Obtains an instance of DayOfWeek from a temporal object.

This obtains a day-of-week based on the specified temporal. A TemporalAccessor represents an arbitrary set of date and time information, which this factory converts to an instance of DayOfWeek.

The conversion extracts the DAY_OF_WEEK field.

This method matches the signature of the functional interface TemporalQuery allowing it to be used as a query via method reference, DayOfWeek::from.

Parameters
temporal TemporalAccessor: the temporal object to convert, not null

Returns
DayOfWeek the day-of-week, not null

Throws
DateTimeException if unable to convert to a DayOfWeek

get

added in API level 26
public int get (TemporalField field)

Gets the value of the specified field from this day-of-week as an int.

This queries this day-of-week for the value of the specified field. The returned value will always be within the valid range of values for the field. If it is not possible to return the value, because the field is not supported or for some other reason, an exception is thrown.

If the field is DAY_OF_WEEK then the value of the day-of-week, from 1 to 7, will be returned. All other ChronoField instances will throw an UnsupportedTemporalTypeException.

If the field is not a ChronoField, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalField.getFrom(TemporalAccessor) passing this as the argument. Whether the value can be obtained, and what the value represents, is determined by the field.

Parameters
field TemporalField: the field to get, not null

Returns
int the value for the field, within the valid range of values

Throws
DateTimeException if a value for the field cannot be obtained or the value is outside the range of valid values for the field
UnsupportedTemporalTypeException if the field is not supported or the range of values exceeds an int
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs

getDisplayName

added in API level 26
public String getDisplayName (TextStyle style, 
                Locale locale)

Gets the textual representation, such as 'Mon' or 'Friday'.

This returns the textual name used to identify the day-of-week, suitable for presentation to the user. The parameters control the style of the returned text and the locale.

If no textual mapping is found then the numeric value is returned.

Parameters
style TextStyle: the length of the text required, not null

locale Locale: the locale to use, not null

Returns
String the text value of the day-of-week, not null

getLong

added in API level 26
public long getLong (TemporalField field)

Gets the value of the specified field from this day-of-week as a long.

This queries this day-of-week for the value of the specified field. If it is not possible to return the value, because the field is not supported or for some other reason, an exception is thrown.

If the field is DAY_OF_WEEK then the value of the day-of-week, from 1 to 7, will be returned. All other ChronoField instances will throw an UnsupportedTemporalTypeException.

If the field is not a ChronoField, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalField.getFrom(TemporalAccessor) passing this as the argument. Whether the value can be obtained, and what the value represents, is determined by the field.

Parameters
field TemporalField: the field to get, not null

Returns
long the value for the field

Throws
DateTimeException if a value for the field cannot be obtained
UnsupportedTemporalTypeException if the field is not supported
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs

getValue

added in API level 26
public int getValue ()

Gets the day-of-week int value.

The values are numbered following the ISO-8601 standard, from 1 (Monday) to 7 (Sunday). See WeekFields.dayOfWeek() for localized week-numbering.

Returns
int the day-of-week, from 1 (Monday) to 7 (Sunday)

isSupported

added in API level 26
public boolean isSupported (TemporalField field)

Checks if the specified field is supported.

This checks if this day-of-week can be queried for the specified field. If false, then calling the range and get methods will throw an exception.

If the field is DAY_OF_WEEK then this method returns true. All other ChronoField instances will return false.

If the field is not a ChronoField, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalField.isSupportedBy(TemporalAccessor) passing this as the argument. Whether the field is supported is determined by the field.

Parameters
field TemporalField: the field to check, null returns false

Returns
boolean true if the field is supported on this day-of-week, false if not

minus

added in API level 26
public DayOfWeek minus (long days)

Returns the day-of-week that is the specified number of days before this one.

The calculation rolls around the start of the year from Monday to Sunday. The specified period may be negative.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
days long: the days to subtract, positive or negative

Returns
DayOfWeek the resulting day-of-week, not null

of

added in API level 26
public static DayOfWeek of (int dayOfWeek)

Obtains an instance of DayOfWeek from an int value.

DayOfWeek is an enum representing the 7 days of the week. This factory allows the enum to be obtained from the int value. The int value follows the ISO-8601 standard, from 1 (Monday) to 7 (Sunday).

Parameters
dayOfWeek int: the day-of-week to represent, from 1 (Monday) to 7 (Sunday)

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
days long: the days to add, positive or negative

Returns
DayOfWeek the resulting day-of-week, not null

query

added in API level 26
public R query (TemporalQuery<R> query)
