Re: CalendarEvent with Recurrence

Start and end is for the time the event actually starts/ends, until is for when the recurrence will stop.

Re: CalendarEvent with Recurrence

[ Edited ]

I can confirm that this does indeed not properly work which is a bummer I need it... is there any ETA, this is something that at nearly 10.2 should have been working long ago Smiley Wink

 

int week = 7;
Recurrence recurrence;
	recurrence.setFrequency(Frequency::Daily);
	recurrence.setUntil(current.addDays(week));

And also any suggestions on how I can take control of my calendar once again without wiping my device?  Currently i have a spinning circle in the middle which is still there even after restarting the device however

 

I can also confirm that it does create a recurring task as my yahoo e-mail calendar demonstrates.  It's just locking us out of the blackberry calendar

 

Recurring

 

*note even being locked out of the calendar application, by clicking the button i created to make that task it will do it again with  no issues appearing in my e-mail only BB cal

Re: CalendarEvent with Recurrence

It sounds like it is working, except you have perhaps run into an issue with the calender app. This isn't really a support channel for BlackBerry apps though, so I'm not sure I can help. That might be a better question for the general Z10 support forums.

 

You could try deleting the event in your Yahoo calender and see what happens.

Re: CalendarEvent with Recurrence

I deleted the events in yahoo but that didn't give me access to the calendar again... I can still create events and they still go to yahoo it was bb/pim/recurrence that breaks the calendar app when initiated by us devs. I will put a post up on the app forum and see if they have any suggestions... I do know that I need recurrence to be functional soon

Re: CalendarEvent with Recurrence

Is there anything wrong with recurrence other than how it may have something to do with the the broken Calender app? It sounds like it was working otherwise, and recurrence certainly works in general. The problems may not even be related.

 

You could try finding the event progamatically and deleting it that way, or deleting your yahoo account and re-adding it.

Re: CalendarEvent with Recurrence

This problems happens with inifinite recurrence too.

 

But it seems I found out, why this happens: If you create a Recurrence instance, the interval will be 0 (which is a pretty bad default value IMHO). If you set it to 1, the recurring events will be displayed as they should.

Re: CalendarEvent with Recurrence

Thanks that never occured to me, I've now long moved past the idea I was working on this for but now if anyone else runs into the issue it'll be easier for them to figure out why it doesn't seem to act as it should
