HOW CAN I get weekday? sunday, monday

How can I get weekday? sunday, monday…

you mean current week day?

make a list of text: [‘monday’,‘tuesday’, … , ‘sunday’]

call device>current “day of the week”, and use the resulting number as and index to the list you defined.

use apis :sunglasses:

Idon’t know what you mean…

When you say

Which do you mean:

  1. Current Day of the week?
  2. Day of week for a particular date other than the current day (past or present)?
  3. List of names of days of the week

For #1, you can use the device blocks:

For #2, Thunkable does not have that feature, but as @eko.devs.apploroceo indicated, there may be a Web API you can use. That is a fairly advanced task.

For #3

Do some read watch play around if u want help first search community and if u dnt find any helpful topics ask us

The “current > day of the week” block returns a value from 1 to 7:

1 is Sunday
2 is Monday
3 is Tuesday
4 is Wednesday
5 is Thursday
6 is Friday
7 is Saturday

So all you need to do is create a local table to translate values to weekday names and use them in your app.


Take a look at this: Thunkable

Exactly what @Deluxe described. Just that I mentioned the use of a list of text instead of local table.

I searched the methods in this community but…

Finally I found the easy method… See below my method…
