Archived:Adding a calendar entry in Flash Lite

Archived.pngArchived: This article is archived because it is not considered relevant for third-party developers creating commercial solutions today. If you think this article is still relevant, let us know by adding the template {{ReviewForRemovalFromArchive|user=~~~~|write your reason here}}.

We do not recommend Flash Lite development on current Nokia devices, and all Flash Lite articles on this wiki have been archived. Flash Lite has been removed from all Nokia Asha and recent Series 40 devices and has limited support on Symbian. Specific information for Nokia Belle is available in Flash Lite on Nokia Browser for Symbian. Specific information for OLD Series 40 and Symbian devices is available in the Flash Lite Developers Library.

This code snippet demonstrates how to use the Calendar Service API in a Flash Lite 3.0 application to add new calendar entries to the calendar. Supported from S60 5th Edition onwards.

// Import the Platform Service Interface
// Heading of the application
heading_txt.text = "Add Calendar event(ToDo)";
// Create a new Service object which has Calendar data
var calender = new Service("Service.Calendar", "IDataSource");
// Define a new Clendar item
// Date syntax: Date([yearOrTimevalue], [month], [date], [hour], [minute],
// [second], [millisecond])
var toDo = {
Type:"ToDo", EndTime:new Date(2008, 12, 1, 10, 0, 0, 0),
Replication:"Open", Description:"Do Example Stub", Priority:1,
AlarmTime:new Date(2008, 12, 1, 9, 30, 0, 0), Status:"TodoNeedsAction"
// Define the input parameters
var inParams = {Type:"CalendarEntry", Item:toDo};
// Define the result value
var outParams = calender.Add(inParams);
// Check if the add was a success
if (outParams.ErrorCode == 0) {
var calenderId = outParams.ReturnValue;
text_txt.text = "ID of the added item: "+calenderId;
} else {
var errorId = outParams.ErrorCode;
text_txt.text += "\rError: "+errorId;


The ID of the added or updated calendar item is displayed.

The added item can be found from the device's calendar application.

Example application

The following sample application has been tested in Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (S60 5th edition, Flash Lite 3.0): File:FlashLite Add Calendar
