How to determine the first day of week (ASP.NET)

Last revision: Jun 20, 2014

DayPilot Pro for ASP.NET WebForms contains a helper class that calculates the date of the first day of week from any date.

DayPilotCalendar1.StartDate = DayPilot.Utils.Week.FirstDayOfWeek();

There are several methods/signatures you can call:

The source code:

/// <summary>
/// Helper class for determining first day of week.
/// </summary>
public class Week
{
/// <summary>
/// Gets the first day of this week. Based on current culture.
/// </summary>
/// <returns></returns>
public static DateTime FirstDayOfWeek()
{
return FirstDayOfWeek(DateTime.Today);
}
/// <summary>
/// Gets the first day of a week where day (parameter) belongs. Based on current culture.
/// </summary>
/// <returns></returns>
public static DateTime FirstDayOfWeek(DateTime day)
{
return FirstDayOfWeek(day, Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture.DateTimeFormat.FirstDayOfWeek);
}
/// <summary>
/// Gets the first day of a week where day (parameter) belongs. weekStart (parameter) specifies the starting day of week.
/// </summary>
/// <returns></returns>
public static DateTime FirstDayOfWeek(DateTime day, DayOfWeek weekStarts)
{
DateTime d = day;
while (d.DayOfWeek != weekStarts)
{
d = d.AddDays(-1);
}
return d;
}
/// <summary>
/// Returns Monday of the week where day (parameter) belongs.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="day"></param>
/// <returns></returns>
public static DateTime FirstWorkingDayOfWeek(DateTime day)
{
return FirstDayOfWeek(day, DayOfWeek.Monday);
}
}
