DayOfWeek get() method in Java with Examples

The get() method of java.time.DayOfWeek is an in-built function in Java which takes a TemporalFeild as parameter and gets the value of the specified field from this day-of-week as an int. The TemporalFeild is a field of date-time, such as month-of-year or hour-of-minute. Date and time is expressed using such fields. 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. The int value follows the ISO-8601 standard, from 1 (Monday) to 7 (Sunday).

Method Declaration:

public int get(TemporalField field);

Syntax:



int val = DayOfWeekObject.get(TemporalField field);

Parameters: This method takes feild as parameter where:

  • field – is a Temporal field like the Chronafeild.DAY_OF_WEEK.
  • DayOfWeekObject – represents the DayOfWeek object.
  • Parameters: This method does not accepts any parameters.

    Return Value: The function returns int value of the day of the week, e.g, 1 for Monday, 2 for Tuesday and so on.
