4.6.1 Event Component

The following is an example of the "VEVENT" calendar component used to represent a meeting that will also be opaque to searches for busy time:

BEGIN:VEVENT
UID:19970901T130000Z-123401@host.com
DTSTAMP:19970901T1300Z

DTEND:19970903T190000Z
SUMMARY:Annual Employee Review
CLASS:PRIVATE

Example 2

The following is an example of the "VEVENT" calendar component used to represent a reminder that will not be opaque, but rather transparent, to searches for busy time:

BEGIN:VEVENT

Example 3

The following is an example of the "VEVENT" calendar component used to represent an anniversary that will occur annually. Since it takes up no time, it will not appear as opaque in a search for busy time; no matter what the value of the "TRANSP" property indicates:

BEGIN:VEVENT
