If you create an event with a recurrence that doesn't have an end date, the calendar will not show the event, for example, 50 years later.  This seems to depend on the type of recurrence (a daily recurrence will end much sooner than a yearly recurrence).  Is this a known limitation of the control?  What is the limit, and do I have any control over it.

For a concrete example, go the the Telerik iCalendar Export demo, edit the Alex's Birthday event to be recurring every March 30th.  It will show up on March 30, 2039, but not March 30, 2040.

Hi Rich Campbell,

We have set an internal limit that is used to prevent lockups when evaluating infinite recurrence rules. Currently it is set to 1000 occurrences. While it is not hard-coded (can be change through the MaximumCandidates property of the RecurrenceRule class), we have not provided a property to change this value for the RecurrenceRule instances that RadScheduler uses internally. We will expose such property, in case the default value is insufficient.

All the best,
