Objective-c get the day of the week in a number starting on monday, not sunday

I am making my own app calendar for the European market. In the function, I have to get the number of the day of the week ... I do, but it returns the number of the day of the week starting from Sunday. How am I supposed to hard-code this number starting Monday? thanks Here's what I have so far:

    NSLocale *frLocale = [[NSLocale alloc] initWithLocaleIdentifier:@"fr_FR"];

    NSCalendar *gregorian = [[NSCalendar alloc] initWithCalendarIdentifier:NSGregorianCalendar];
    [gregorian setLocale:frLocale];
    NSDateComponents *comps = [gregorian components:NSWeekdayCalendarUnit fromDate:date_];
    int weekday = [comps weekday];

    NSLog(@"Week day is %i", weekday);
    return weekday;

The best way to do this is to use [NSCalendar setFirstWeekday:]

as Joshua said in his answer.

Otherwise, you can do integer arithmetic. The Vova method is simple:

if (weekday>1)


This one is below, although a little confusing:

int europeanWeekday = ((weekday + 5) % 7) + 1;




For this you have to use [NSCalendar setFirstWeekday:]
