Hi there,

what is best practice to provide an ical calender feed based on Kendo Scheduler events?
I want to integrate the events into Outlook and Mobile devices.

My search on that topic showed that the Recurrence pattern is parsed on clientside and not serverside, which would be needed for my request.

The best solution would be if the user can edit/create events in Outlook/MobDevice. I believe an additional CalDAV layer would be needed for that. Is there any recommended path doing that with kendo mvc?

Thanks for any hints on that!

Chris

Hi Chris,

Basically, you will need to parse the iCal events into SchedulerEvent objects, which are recognizable by the widget. I would suggest you check the DDay.iCal library as it provides parsing of ics files. It also can recur the events on the server.

Indeed the scheduler create recurrence series on the client and it expects only the recurrence head event (the one that has recurrenceRule) and exception events if any to be returned from the server. Currently widget does not support binding to expanded recurrence series.

Give a try and let us know if we can be of a further assistance with the integration.

For those wanting to parse ics files or expand recurring schedules server-side, DDay.iCal has been replaced by iCal.NET (https://github.com/rianjs/ical.net/)
