Hi,
Can you provide a link , or decribe the recurrence functionality. 

The core for this, what advantages does it have? Will the appointmentUpdate/insert fire for each and so on... the property recurrenceSupport, what is that and so on...

I use my own code to create all dates during a specific interval, and have a field to keep them together. I use my own form (like the radDock eample)...Maybe I an combine the technologies...

Thanks

Hi,

This help topic outlines the inner workings of the recurrence implementation in RadScheduler:
http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/schedule_serversideworkingwithrecurringappointments.html

At a glance, recurring events behave just like normal appointments in RadScheduler, with the exception that only the "master" appointment is stored in the database. The occurrences are generated on demand, as needed.

If you edit an individual occurrence, then two things happen. First the recurrence rule of the "master" is updated, so the recurrence engine will skip this particular date when generating the series. Then a new appointment is inserted to store the new data. It is linked to it's parent via its RecurrenceParentID field. In this case the events that will fire (in order) are:
