Dynamic Calculation Of A Set Of Days (Like The Next 8 Mondays)

The following code takes today and figures out when the next monday is. Then it calculates all the next mondays...

for 8 weeks. I used it in a dialog list to give users a block of dates to choose from (all the same day, like monday). You could adjust it for any day of the week. Temp1 calculates the day of the week for today(1 being Sunday, 7 being Saturday). Temp2 calculates how many days to add to Temp1 (today) to get to the next monday. Mon(x) calculates monday for the next 8 weeks (Mon1-Week1). Temp1:=@Weekday(@Today); Temp2:=@If(Temp1=1;1;Temp1=2;7;Temp1=3;6;Temp1=4;5;Temp1=5;4;Temp1=6;3;2); Mon1:=@Adjust(@Today;0;0;(Temp2);0;0;0); Mon2:=@Adjust(@Today;0;0;(Temp2+7);0;0;0); Mon3:=@Adjust(@Today;0;0;(Temp2+14);0;0;0); Mon4:=@Adjust(@Today;0;0;(Temp2+21);0;0;0); Mon5:=@Adjust(@Today;0;0;(Temp2+28);0;0;0); Mon6:=@Adjust(@Today;0;0;(Temp2+35);0;0;0); Mon7:=@Adjust(@Today;0;0;(Temp2+42);0;0;0); Mon8:=@Adjust(@Today;0;0;(Temp2+49);0;0;0); @Text(Mon1:Mon2:Mon3:Mon4:Mon5:Mon6:Mon7:Mon8)
