I have a number between 1 and 7, which I want to turn into the user's locale's equivalent of Monday to Sunday. Can I do that and if so, how?
NSDateFormatter can give you the list of names:
NSDateFormatter * df = [[NSDateFormatter alloc] init]; [df setLocale: [NSLocale currentLocale]]; NSArray * weekdays = [df weekdaySymbols];
Which you can then index like any other array
[weekdays objectAtIndex:dayIdx]; Be aware, however, that the first weekday may differ by locale; exactly how it may vary (along with many other things about
NSCalendar) is not particularly well-explained in the docs.
