[dddd], [Dddd], [DDDD] : Full-length Weekday

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Use these tokens to get the full name of the weekday.

 

On Tuesday October 12th 1998, in English, the result may be :

 

[dddd] = tuesday,

[Dddd] = Tuesday

[DDDD] = TUESDAY.

 

In some languages, German for example, the first letter of all weekdays is always capitalized. It is always better to capitalize the token translation (ie. Tuesday) rather than the token [Dddd] because it allows you to use the same GridTemplate for other languages where the first letter is not necessarily capitalized.

 

The reason why we say the result may be, is that the above tokens are mixed source tokens. Q++ will decide, based on the current date, which day of the week it is, but it will then look for the translation that you supplied for 'Monday', 'Tuesday', 'Wednesday' … in the current language.

 

Q++ already comes with the translations for weekdays in many languages.
