Calendar: Add event to Outlook Calendar?

i saw this here and was wondering if something similar could be done in VB for adding a VB calendar event to your MS Outlook calendar.. it would be extremely useful..

anyone have any idea of how easy/difficult this would be?

Your example is coded in ASP, but it's an interesting idea.

I think I'll have a look at that...

It seems they're using a vcs file.
Here is the format:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

What would need to be done is code a page which outputs this data, given the eventid. Not that hard actually...

Here's some code you can use:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Add this to your calendar.php, before this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then, add a link and link to calendar.php?do=outlookevent&e=$eventid

colin -

wow. thanks. i have a couple of issues though.

first is probably something simple - when i added the link to my template, i altered the following in calendar_showeventsbit:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

that messed up my main cell (see pic below).. can you tell what i did wrong there?


now, when i click on the link, i get:

Invalid Event specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the webmaster

i'm guessing i messed something up with the link (see code above), because when i hover over it, it shows ...calendar.php?do=outlookevent&e=0

just wondering if you could help me get this going. thanks again!

dave

use $eventinfo[eventid] instead of $eventid

Also, you might have to change the colspan for the table cells below...

Don't forget to add

before the DESCRIPTION: part.

Also, the dates aren't correct for ranged events. I'll have to fix this later.

Is anyone working on this? I have it almost working but the timezones are causing an issue with the times not being correct.

Here's what I have:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Like I said it creates the file fine and imports great but the times are wrong and no amount of fennegaling I do changes that.

Lots of views but no input. No one out there can figure this out?

maybe this could be switched to a different forum, like a mod forum or something, since you've already got it almost figured out. that way, more people are likely to see it and maybe have the answer to fix that last little bit. i'd love to add this to my board once it's fixed re:time zones & ranged events. thanks
