I'm currently working on an application using the Telerik controls that needs to handle recurring events, I am working off of the following two links mostly:

https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/xamarin/nativecontrols/android/calendar/calendar-reading-events#recurring-eventshttps://docs.telerik.com/devtools/android/AndroidControlsDoc/com/telerik/widget/calendar/events/read/RecurringEvent.html

My application will read appointments generated in a different format and have to adapt them to the way the Telerik control reads them on mobile.

From what I understand, the IAppointment interface does not have a way of defining whether an appointment is recurring or not, if that is the case, how can I instantiate new Telerik appointments (those implementing IAppointment) that are recurring? Or is this a job for the CustomRenderer? 

If it is a case for the CustomRenderer, I have created a CustomEventReadAdapter (as per first link) however, I am unsure when the EventShouldRecur method will fire, and how do I generate a RecurringEvent (for the EventReadAdapter override)?

Hello Akin,

The referred article regarding recurring events is related only to RadCalendar for Xamarin.Android and even there I am afraid the implementation is in its initial state and is not complete.

Actually, we have a feature request for providing recurrent appointments support for our RadCalendar for Xamarin.Forms control, so it will be available on all platforms. In addition, we're targeting the next official release of Telerik UI for Xamarin (January 2019) for shipping this functionality. You could follow the feature request in our public portal at the link below:
Calendar: Add recurring appointments

I hope this timeframe would be acceptable for you.

Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Regards,
Yana
