Recurring appointments aren't expanding recurrence using CalendarFolder.FindAppointments in the C# Exchange Web Service API RRS feed

  • Question

  • According to the docs, .FindAppointments() expands the recurrence of items:

    Obtains a list of appointments by searching the contents of this  folder and performing recurrence expansion for recurring appointments

    It's not working:

                ExchangeService service = ExchangeServiceUtilities.CreateExchangeService(s,u);
                DateTime now = DateTime.Now;
                CalendarView cv = new CalendarView(now, now);
                CalendarFolder cal = CalendarFolder.Bind(service,WellKnownFolderName.Calendar);
                FindItemsResults<Appointment> apps = cal.FindAppointments(cv);
                foreach (Appointment a in apps)
                    Trace.WriteLine("Checking: " + a.End.ToString() + " : " + now);
                    if (a.End > now)
                        Trace.WriteLine("Setting Appointment for: " + u.Id);

    produces the following:

    Checking: 6/24/2013 10:00:00 PM : 6/24/2013 9:41:12 PM
    Setting Appointment for: 6dd36837d202bf28b0a8cfece47fb111cd0fec04

    It's set to recur every half hour, so I should be seeing a lot more of them...

  • Got it.  As it turns out, there is a bug in the method which causes it not to expand appointments if your start and end date are the same.  Thanks M$.
