converting day of the week to numerical

Recommended Posts

[code]
<?php
echo date('w');
?>
[/code]

so, as with any other date call, pass in a timestamp of the date you want the day of the week for as a second parameter, and you're good to go.

that I know already, I guess I wasn't clear before :P

What I meant to say is that I have a dropdown, the value of the dropdown is a date in this format Y-m-d and what's displayed in the dropdown is something like date("l (M jS)") now when a user selects a date it calls a javascript function which extracts the day like so

var text = main_select.options[main_select.selectedIndex].text.split(" ");
var day = text[0].toLowerCase();

now I know that by using a switch statement I can change that string to a numerical value but I was wondering if there was a more efficient way of doing it.

Well, the Date() constuctor can take the full six-parameter version, so once you have a proper JavaScript Date object, you should be fine.
