    Has anyone had any success or experience with integrating the Calendar control with Microsoft Exchange?  Any pointers or info, examples would be very well received.  Thanks in advance!

    Hello Ripsin,

    Note that the RadCalendar control is not tested for colaboration with MicrosoftExchange however there should not be problems in this implementation. If you need to pass data between the RadCalednar and tye mentioned serevr you should use the proper events and pass the needed arguments. This scenario should be the same as using asp Calendar.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Ripsin

    You should check out the "Exchange Web Services Managed API":

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd633709%28v=EXCHG.80%29.aspx

    Basically, you create a class inheriting from Telerik's SchedulerProviderBase, and update the required CRUD functions as needed. You can use Telerik's included "ExchangeSchedulerProvider" as a departure point, but I found that it is much more difficult to work with, has issues with recurrence and time zones, and returns larger sets of data than necessary (eg it fetches *all* recurrence events in the system and then parses them to see if any individual instances fall in the date range).

    Cheers
