Appointments.SearchCompleted Event

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Occurs when a search for appointments completes.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Phone.UserData
Assembly:  Microsoft.Phone (in Microsoft.Phone.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: Not mapped to an xmlns.


Public Event SearchCompleted As EventHandler(Of AppointmentsSearchEventArgs)
public event EventHandler<AppointmentsSearchEventArgs> SearchCompleted
<object SearchCompleted="EventHandler<AppointmentsSearchEventArgs>" .../>


To associate this event with a method that will handle the event, create a delegate and add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever this event occurs, unless you remove the delegate.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.


The following example assumes that you have a Windows Phone application that has a page with a button named SearchAppointments. The code assumes that you have a databound list box named AppointmentResultsData. In this example, you search for all appointments in the next seven days. For the full example, including the XAML, see How to access calendar data for Windows Phone 8.
