Windows Phone provides an aggregated view of the user’s calendar data across the user's different accounts. Information can come from sources such as data entered in the phone itself, social networking sites, and other data service providers. Not all data from all service providers is exposed publicly through this API. The StorageKind enumeration lists the possible sources of data.

All individual Appointment objects come from the SearchAsync method of the Appointments object.


If you use this API in your app, you must specify the following capabilities in the app manifest. Otherwise, your app might not work correctly or it might exit unexpectedly.
