Get starting date of first week in a year.

Get starting date of first week in a year.

Hello fellow forum members!!!

I am using Calendar.WEEK_OF_YEAR to return to me an integer of 1-53, my week is set to start on Monday's. So the first week of 2011, was December 27th, 2010 - January 2nd, 2011.

I need some help writing a function, or using built in functions to return to me the first day of Week 1.

String x = getFirstDay(1,2011);

String getFirstDay(int weeknumber, int year )
 //some helpful code here! I'm lost!
 returns "12-27-2011";

Thank you for any help!!!


RE: Get starting date of first week in a year.

Never mind guys! I figured it out!

Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
cal.set(Calendar.YEAR, 2011);
cal.set(Calendar.WEEK_OF_YEAR, 1);
cal.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK, 2);
cal.set(Calendar.HOUR, 0);
cal.set(Calendar.MINUTE, 0);
cal.set(Calendar.SECOND, 0);
cal.set(Calendar.MILLISECOND, 0);

//Displays "Mon Dec 27 00:00:00 EST 2010"
