Hello Suriya,

Currently RadScheduler for WinForms has a bit different behavior when it comes to recurrence appointments. It doesn't hide the major appointment, and when you create one recurrence appointment the major appointment will be shown and the recurrence will start from the recurrence start date. This is the reason that we save it in the recurrence rule. This behavior is a bit odd, and we will change it to coincide with the web scheduler (and Outlook as well). This will be done for the upcoming release.

The workaround is to save the recurrence rule from the winforms scheduler and after that modify it in the web scheduler to fit your needs.

If you have additional questions feel free to ask.
 

Kind regards,

Hello Suriya,

You could delete "RECCURENCESTART=20100324T103000Z;" from the recurrence rule in order to use the recurrence rule in the web. You should not do anything special if you what to read web format in winforms RadScheduler.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

Hi ,
we are using RadSchedulerRecurrenceEditor in web application.
so through web application we are saving recurrence rule in database.(in string format)

now we want to read this recurrence rule in windows service and find occurences.

as per this thread recurrence rule format is different for web and win.
can you provide code to read recurrence rule set in web and i want to read it in windows service?

Thanks in advance...

Hello Abhijit,

You can use the help article that was given to you by my colleague Veronica in this forum thread. You just need to change the target framework of your service to the version against which the Telerik.Web.UI.dll was built (3.5 or 4.0) and you will stop getting the mentioned error messages.

Using our recurrence rule parser is not recommended, because there are still some differences between the windows and web formats.

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask if you have any additional questions.

Best wishes,
