Archived:Importing calendar entries in Flash Lite

From Nokia Developer Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

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We do not recommend Flash Lite development on current Nokia devices, and all Flash Lite articles on this wiki have been archived.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 shows how to use the Calendar Service API in a Flash Lite 3.0 application to import calendar entries from the external text file to the default calendar of the device. This is supported from S60 5th Edition onwards.

Preconditions

Note.pngNote: For a successful calendar import with this application you need to a text file called 'example.txt' at c:\\Data\\Others\\example.txt. The text file also needs to include valid VCal format data. (This file is created in another snippet: Exporting calendar entries to a text file in Flash Lite )

Source

// Import Platform Service Interface
import com.nokia.lib.Service;
// Heading of the application
heading_txt.text = "Import Calendar entries";
 
// Create new Service object which has Calendar data
var calender = new Service("Service.Calendar", "IDataSource");
 
// Define data for import
// c:\\Data\\Others\\example.txt file is needed
var inputData = {FileName:"c:\\Data\\Others\\example.txt", Format:"VCal"};
// Define input data
var inParams = {Type:"CalendarEntry", Data:inputData};
// Define result data
var outParams = calender.Import(inParams);
if (outParams.ErrorCode == 0) {
text_txt.text += "Import success!\rImported entries:\r";
var outList = outParams.ReturnValue;
// Go through all imported calendar entries and trace them to the textbox
// on the scene
do {
var id = outList.next();
if (null != id) {
text_txt.text += "-"+id+"\r";
} else {
break;
}
} while (true);
 
} else {
var errorId = outParams.ErrorCode;
text_txt.text += "\rError: "+errorId;
}

Postconditions

The IDs of the imported calendar entries are displayed. The entries are also visible in the default calendar of the device.

Example application

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