How to: Export Data to vCalendar

The following example demonstrates how to export data from a SchedulerDataStorage to the vCalendar format. To do this you should use two overloads of the SchedulerDataStorage.ExportToVCalendar method. Note that these methods allow both exporting data either to a file, or to a stream.

using System.IO;
using DevExpress.XtraScheduler;
// ...

// Save appointments to a file in the vCalendar format.
private string StoreToVCalendarFile(SchedulerDataStorage storage){
    string path = "C:\\Temp\\Appointments.vcs";
    storage.ExportToVCalendar(path);
    return path;
}

// Save appointments to a stream in the vCalendar format.
private MemoryStream StoreToVCalendarStream(SchedulerDataStorage storage){
    MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream();
    storage.ExportToVCalendar(stream);
    return stream;
}

// ...
