Creates a object with a day of the week.
EKRecurrenceDayOfWeek specifies either a simple day of the week, or the nth instance of a particular day of the week, such as the third Tuesday of every month. The week number is only valid when used with monthly or yearly recurrences, since it would be otherwise meaningless.
Valid values for dayOfTheWeek are integers 1-7, which correspond to days of the week with Sunday = 1. Valid values for weekNumber portion are (+/-)1-53, where a negative value indicates a value from the end of the range. For example, in a yearly event -1 means last week of the year. -1 in a Monthly recurrence indicates the last week of the month.
The value 0 also indicates the weekNumber is irrelevant (every Sunday, etc.).
Day-of-week weekNumber values that are out of bounds for the recurrence type will result in an exception when trying to initialize the recurrence. In particular, weekNumber must be zero when passing EKRecurrenceDayOfWeek objects to initialize a weekly recurrence.


Pick Sunday:
