Archived:Deleting 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We do not recommend Flash Lite development on current Nokia devices, and all Flash Lite articles on this wiki have been archived.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 delete a calendar entry from the calendar.

// Import Platform Service Interface
// Heading of the application
heading_txt.text = "Delete Calendar entry (the first)";
// Create a new Service object which has Calendar data
var calender = new Service("Service.Calendar", "IDataSource");
// Define the input parameters for the calendar entry list
var inParams = {Type:"CalendarEntry"};
// Define the result value
var outParams = calender.GetList(inParams);
if (outParams.ErrorCode == 0) {
var outList = outParams.ReturnValue;
var outputEntry = null;
var idList:Array = new Array();
var nameList:Array = new Array();
do {
outputEntry =;
if (null != outputEntry) {
// Get the lists of IDs and firstname to Arrays
} else {
} while (true);
} else {
// if errors trace them to the textfield
var errorId = outParams.ErrorCode;
text_txt.text += "Error while listing: "+errorId+"\r";
// NOTE! Running this application will delete the first calendar entry in your
// default calendar
// Check if there is a calendar entry to delete
if (idList[0]) {
// Define list of IDs which will be deleted
var idDeleteList = [idList[0]];
var entryId = {IdList:idDeleteList};
text_txt.text += "Delete entry, "+idList[0]+"\r";
// Define input parameters for the deletion
var inDeleteParams = {Type:"CalendarEntry", Data:entryId};
// Define result data of the deletion
var outDeleteParams = calender.Delete(inDeleteParams);
if (outDeleteParams.ErrorCode == 0) {
text_txt.text += "Deletion success"+"\r";
} else {
var errorId2 = outParams.ErrorCode;
text_txt.text += "Error while deleting: "+errorId2;
} else {
text_txt.text += "No calendar entries found!";


The ID of the deleted calendar entry will be displayed. The entry is deleted from the calendar application of the device.

Note! In this code snippet the first entry is automatically deleted without user intervention once the application is started.

Example application

The following sample application has been tested in Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (S60 5th edition, Flash Lite 3.0).
