    I have a related post on the asp.net forum about this:
    http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/aspnet-ajax/scheduler/parse-recurrence-data.aspx#2120924\

    Here is what I need to do. I have an asp.net web application that uses a radscheduler and saves the appointment data in that format. This web application also runs an OOB silverlight app that will need to read this same data. We won't be using a silverlight radschedulerview to display this data - will just be including the appointment time info in a column of a radgrid based on a timeframe.

    In asp.net I can parse the recurrence appointment rules using RecurrenceRule.TryParse and related methods to display appointment data outside the radscheduler. Is this possible to do from silverlight? I've read that the data schemas differ between the two types: asp.net houses start/end and exceptions in one recurrence rule field, while silverlight radscheduler/view may use multiple fields, etc.? Guessing a conversion of the asp.net data needs to happen so the TryParse SL helper methods work.

    Thanks!

    Think I have a solution by having our domain service class pull out the occurrences using the asp.net parser - thus all that returns to silverlight is a list of what I want.
