    I have searched this site a bit trying to find where someone has to have done this before with the Scheduler ????
    I need a simple way to convert a recurrence rule from how it's stored in the database to a descriptive sentence such as "Occurs every Monday for the next 5 weeks"

    Searching parse recurrence rule, etc. brings back nothing but people trying to re-write the recurrence rule :)

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    Hi Kevin,

    Thank you for getting back to this issue. We haven't implemented any helper method since the last post in this forum thread. However, this would be a nice feature to add to RadScheduler so I will log it. We are thinking of a static method, for example GetRecurrenceDescription() which will return a sentence describing the recurrence rule. What has prevented us from implementing such a method by now was the eventual complications with localization, but it should be fairly simple to achieve it for English only.


    Kind regards,

    Apologies for the duplication Peter :)
    Kind of odd that my original post didn't come back in search results.
    If I come up with anything before hand, I'll gladly share.

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    Hello,

    I was wondering if you had implemented a helper method to accomplish this yet.

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    Hi Jerry,

     
    There is no inbuilt method for such behavior but you can refer to this Code Library where similar scenario have been implemented.

    Hope this will be helpful.
