Reading VCalendar And VCard Using .NET?Jun 26, 2009
I want to be able to read vCard and vCalendar data using .NET, I have something which does this, and have looked at the specification. For those not familar with the format here is some test data from my current application:
PRODID:-//Microsoft Corporation//Windows Calendar 1.0//EN
These are both stored as plain text, filename.ics for vCalendar and filename.vcf for vCard. I currently use line by line parsing, however this seems primitive as iCalendar items can be multi-line could LINQ or similar method be used, such as those that cope with missing or extra elements, including carriage returns in the data? I have the specifications for this, if a similar way is possible for something else then this will be fine, I am using .NET 3.5 and Visual Basic 2008, so can use any .NET feature available that could support this.
