    As the repeat definition does not include it, the API itself, is not supporting such an alarm, thus you would basically need to make alarms yourself, and set the date + time for them.

    if you think that something could work, you could always try it out, note that you can change the date etc. on the device any time, as well as I'm rather sure the device alarm server would monitor time change events. Anyway, for what would use use the TTimeInterval for ? and how would teh alarm server get your custom repeating instructions from it ?

    How I think if i set [ alarm.NextDueTime() += TTimeIntervalDays( 10 ); ] , it will be repeated ? I think the defult RepeatDefinition is once.
    may be the solve is by open the program automaticaly at alarm expire then setting it again !! , but I am searching about more logic way.
    Thanks you again Mr symbianyucca.

    yep, basically if the alarm is not repeating, it will be deleted after it is shown, and if it is repeating the NextDueTime will be set by the alarm server to the next time according to the repeat rule, and as there is no repeat rule to make it automatically repeat every 10 days, you could as said earlier make own alarms every 10 days, or of course you can monitor alarms with background server, and go making a new alarm once the last one has expired.
