Property value

Type: System.UInt32
An unsigned 32-bit integer that indicates the first day of the week. The following values are possible:
  • 0 -- Sunday

  • 1 -- Monday

  • 2 -- Tuesday

  • 3 -- Wednesday

  • 4 -- Thursday

  • 5 -- Friday

  • 6 -- Saturday

The FirstDayOfWeek property throws an exception if the value is not between 0 and 6.

The following code example sets the first day of the week that is used in calendars to Thursday.

using (SPSite oSiteCollection = new SPSite("http://localhost"))
    using (SPWeb oWebsiteRoot = oSiteCollection.RootWeb)
        SPRegionalSettings oRegionalSettings = oWebsiteRoot.RegionalSettings;
        oRegionalSettings.FirstDayOfWeek = 4;
