Hi,

I need to retrieve the recurrence pattern and set it to our custom object. I tried various methods. In all these cases, I am not able to retrieve DaysOfWeekMask which holds values like "Sunday" or "Monday|Tuesday|Wednesday" and cast it to our custom object DaysOfWeek which is also an enum.

1st Method

a) RecurrenceDays days = new RecurrenceDays();
days = days.AddDay(CurrentCreatedAppointment.RecurrenceRule.Pattern.DaysOfWeekMask);
var s = days.GetDaysOfWeek().Select(x => (DaysOfWeek)Enum.Parse(typeof(DaysOfWeek), x.ToString())).AsEnumerable();
viewModel.BackupArchiveSettings.ByDay = new ObservableCollection<DaysOfWeek>( s);
var k = s.GetEnumerator();

var k1 = k.Current;

 

2nd Method

 RecurrenceDays days = new RecurrenceDays();
days = days.AddDay(CurrentCreatedAppointment.RecurrenceRule.Pattern.DaysOfWeekMask);
var s = days.GetDaysOfWeek().Select(x => (DaysOfWeek)Enum.Parse(typeof(DaysOfWeek), x.ToString())).AsEnumerable();

newcol = new ObservableCollection<DaysOfWeek>();
foreach (var item in s.ToList())
{
 viewModel.BackupArchiveSettings.ByDay.Add(item);
}

 

Please help

 

Thanks,

Divya

Hello Divya,

To get the recurrence pattern of an appointment, you can use its RecurrenceRule and the Pattern property, as you are already doing.

var pattern = CurrentCreatedAppointment.RecurrenceRule.Pattern;

Note that the Appointment elements doesn't have a recurrence rule set by default, so in the situations where the property is not set explicitly its value will be null. A similar statement applies for the DaysOfWeekMask property - if not defined explicitly, its value is None.

Can you tell me what exactly doesn't work on your side? And also when your code is executed? It would be useful, if you could isolate the issue in a runnable project and send it over.

Sorry for delayed reply. And thank you for your response

I was able to achieve the same by these steps

                   var days = CurrentCreatedAppointment.RecurrenceRule.Pattern.DaysOfWeekMask.GetDaysOfWeek();                    
                    foreach (var day in days)
                    {
                        viewModel.BackupSettings.ByDay.Add((DaysOfWeek)((int)day));
                    }

Thanks
