public DayOfWeek DayOfWeek { get; }

Property Value

Type: System..::..DayOfWeek
An enumerated constant that indicates the day of the week of this DateTime value.

The value of the constants in the DayOfWeek enumeration ranges from DayOfWeek..::..Sunday to DayOfWeek..::..Saturday. If cast to an integer, its value ranges from zero (which indicates DayOfWeek..::..Sunday) to six (which indicates DayOfWeek..::..Saturday).

The DayOfWeek property returns an enumerated constant; it does not reflect a system's regional and language settings. To retrieve a string representing a localized weekday name for a particular date, call one of the overloads of the ToString method that includes a format parameter and pass it either the ddd or dddd custom format strings.
