Adobe Air , export data to .ics and import to google Calendar

Let’s assume you have a dataGrid with some data, and they are categorized by date. Then you wanted to import those data/notes to google calendar (create one and name it “sample Calendar”, or change the calendar name below to match one of your already created calendars.

note:

/* This functionality is implemented in my Calendar Application, and the source code including these functions will be available in the following days at: Google Code
*/

Here is how:

first of you will need the place to save the file…

public function saveAs():void

{

var docsDir:File = File.documentsDirectory;

var typeArr:Array=[“.ics”,”.txt”];

try

{

docsDir.browseForSave(“Save As: || Type only name without extension”);

docsDir.addEventListener(Event.SELECT, saveICS);

}

catch (error:Error){

trace(“Failed:”, error.message);

}

}

//then you will need the google Calendar .ics structure

public function saveICS(event:Event)

{

var newFile:File = event.target as File;

newFile.nativePath +=”.ics”;

var arr:Array=[];

var FINAL_STR:String =””;

/*initialization options, no need to recreate. use as is. */

arr[0]=

[
“BEGIN:VCALENDAR”+”\n”+

“PRODID:=//Google Inc//Google Calendar 70.9054//EN”+”\n”+

“VERSION:2.0″+”\n”+

“CALSCALE:GREGORIAN”+”\n”+

“METHOD:PUBLISH”+”\n”+

“X-WR-CALNAME:sample Calendar”+”\n”+

“X-WR-TIMEZONE:Europe/Athens”+”\n”

];

//to go through the whole dataGrid

for (var i=1;i {

arr[i] = [

“BEGIN:VEVENT”+”\n”+

“DTSTART:”+dg.dataProvider[i-1].year+formatMonth(reverseMonth(dg.dataProvider[i-1].month))+formatMonth(dg.dataProvider[i-1].date)+”T”+formatTime(‘s’,dg.dataProvider[i-1].time)+”\n”+

“DTEND:”+dg.dataProvider[i-1].year+formatMonth(reverseMonth(dg.dataProvider[i-1].month))+formatMonth(dg.dataProvider[i-1].date)+”T”+formatTime(‘e’,dg.dataProvider[i-1].time)+”\n”+

“DTSTAMP:20100123T152831Z”+”\n”+

“UID:”+”\n”+

“CREATED:20100123T101105Z”+”\n”+

“DESCRIPTION: “+String(stripHtmlTags(dg.dataProvider[i-1].comments).replace(/”/g,” “))+”\n”+

“LAST-MODIFIED:20100123T1001105Z”+”\n”+

“LOCATION: – “+”\n”+

“SEQUENCE:0″+”\n”+

“STATUS: CONFIRMED”+”\n”+

“SUMMARY:”+String(dg.dataProvider[i-1].comments)+”\n”+

“TRANSP:OPAQUE”+”\n”+

“END:VEVENT”+”\n”

];

FINAL_STR += arr[i];
}
arr[dg.dataProvider.length] =
[
“END:VCALENDAR”
];

// Save the file

var stream:FileStream = new FileStream();
stream.open(newFile, FileMode.WRITE);
stream.writeUTFBytes(arr[0]+FINAL_STR+arr[dg.dataProvider.length]);
stream.close();
}

/* some formation functions. depends on the format you use on the dataGrid, you might or might not need them. */

public function formatTime(pos,str:String):String
{
var timeArr:Array=[];
var hh = “”;
var mm = “”;
var ss = “00”;
var FINAL_TIME;

timeArr = str.split(“–“);
if (pos == “s”)
{
hh = String(timeArr[0]).slice(0,2);
mm = String(timeArr[0]).slice(-2);

FINAL_TIME = hh+mm+ss;
}
else if(pos == “e”)
{
hh = String(timeArr[1]).slice(0,2);
mm = String(timeArr[1]).slice(-2);

FINAL_TIME = hh+mm+ss;
}
return FINAL_TIME
}

public function formatMonth(str)
{

if (Number(str)<10) str = "0">
