Way to add calendar events to the repository? (Closed) (Mono Support )

Can anyone tell me the function to call to save a new event to the calendar event repository?

I have been able to create a new calendar using

repository.CreateCalendar(ownerId, name, slug)<BR>

I am having trouble finding a similar function to create an event that will save into the repository.

I can populate an event like this:

var newEvent = repository.GetNewCalendarEvent(authorId, calendarId);
newEvent.Title =
"Some title";
newEvent.Description = "Some
newEvent.AllDay =
newEvent.StartTime =
newEvent.EndTime = currentDay.AddDays(1);

What is the correct way to save a populated event back into the repository?

Hi Jeremy,

You're on right track. GetNewCalendarEvent will give you only in-memory instance of new event and it will not save it in database. Also this method will ensure newEvent has all required fields and it's attached to calendar. Sometimes you don't want to save new event to persistent storage at the time of creation, you may need to validate it before saving it. To save it to database you need to use generic SaveEntity method, you just need to add this code after populating your event


If you don't have create or save method for entity you can use generic SaveEntity on any repository to save it to persistent storage.

Thank you. That was the missing piece of the puzzle. I have been able to save the new event back into the repository now and have seen it in the database table.
