Is there easy way to get list of day_of_week in short format from user settings.
I am adding weekday names in my alarm program http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=5086

One easy way would be read them in ini file and overwrite 4*7 bytes array, but Im trying to do it automaticly.
Code:
  weekdays4        db 'Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun ',0

;in ini file with dummy x
weekdays4=Ma  Ti  Ke  To  Pe  La  Su  x

I found solution, it was almost too easy.
Updated Alarm v0.11 in project area
Code:
LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT = 0400h
proc get_weekday_names
local temp_date:SYSTEMTIME
   push    ebx edi
     mov     edi,weekdays4
       mov     ebx,23
      .new_day:
       mov     [temp_date.wDay],bx     ; 23.july.2007 is monday
    mov     [temp_date.wMonth],7
        mov     [temp_date.wYear],2007
      lea     edx,[temp_date]
     invoke  GetDateFormat,LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT,0,edx,day_name_format,edi,8
       add     edi,4
       inc     ebx
 cmp     ebx,30                  ; loop until full week is done
      jb      .new_day
    mov     byte [edi],0
        pop     edi ebx
     ret
endp

day_name_format db 'ddd   ',0
weekdays4 db 'Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun     ',0 ; 4 extra bytes for read buffer

Use GetLocaleInfo function with LOCALE_SABBREVDAYNAME1, LOCALE_SABBREVDAYNAME2, etc.

peter, thanks. I knew there must be some API to get it, I just didn't find it. Magic words "Locale Information" and there are more useful local stuff.

Agreed. Windows has alot of fancy features like this that are nice to have, we just don't know where they are or, worse off, that they even exist. For all i know, there could be a function in windows that does the message loop for me. There might even be a way to clear the console window without throwing out a bunch of spaces after resetting position to 0,0 or using system("CLS") which is slow.
