Namespace: System.Globalization
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

'Declaration
Public Overridable Function GetWeekOfYear ( _
	time As DateTime, _
	rule As CalendarWeekRule, _
	firstDayOfWeek As DayOfWeek _
) As Integer
'Usage
Dim instance As Calendar
Dim time As DateTime
Dim rule As CalendarWeekRule
Dim firstDayOfWeek As DayOfWeek
Dim returnValue As Integer

returnValue = instance.GetWeekOfYear(time, rule, firstDayOfWeek)
public int GetWeekOfYear (
	DateTime time, 
	CalendarWeekRule rule, 
	DayOfWeek firstDayOfWeek
)
public function GetWeekOfYear (
	time : DateTime, 
	rule : CalendarWeekRule, 
	firstDayOfWeek : DayOfWeek
) : int
Not applicable.

Parameters

time

The DateTime to read.

rule

A CalendarWeekRule value that defines a calendar week.

firstDayOfWeek

A DayOfWeek value that represents the first day of the week.

Return Value

A positive integer that represents the week of the year that includes the date in the time parameter.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

firstDayOfWeek is outside the range supported by the calendar.

-or-

rule is not a valid CalendarWeekRule value.

This method can be used to determine the number of weeks in the year by setting time to the last day of the year.

The CultureInfo.DateTimeFormat property contains culture-specific values that can be used for rule and firstDayOfWeek.

The FirstDayOfWeek property contains the default DayOfWeek value that represents the first day of the week for a specific culture, using the calendar specified in the Calendar property.

The CalendarWeekRule property contains the default CalendarWeekRule value that defines a calendar week for a specific culture, using the calendar specified in the Calendar property.

For example, in GregorianCalendar, the GetWeekOfYear method for January 1 returns 1.

The following code example shows how the result of GetWeekOfYear varies depending on the FirstDayOfWeek and the CalendarWeekRule used. If the specified date is the last day of the year, GetWeekOfYear returns the total number of weeks in that year.
