Recurrences and Exceptions
Calendar events with recurrence rules can be significantly more complicated to handle correctly. There are three parts to handling them:
- rrule - the recurrence rule specifying the pattern of recurring dates and times for the event.
- recurrences - an optional array of event data that can override specific occurrences of the event.
- exdate - an optional array of dates that should be excluded from the recurrence pattern.
See example_rrule.js for an example of handling recurring calendar events.
