XML Data

You can use an XML data stream to retrieve and store appointment and resource data. The AppointmentCollection.ReadXml and ResourceCollection.ReadXml methods, their counterparts AppointmentCollection.WriteXml and the ResourceCollection.WriteXml are implemented for this purpose.

To serialize and de-serialize a single appointment, use methods of the AppointmentXmlPersistenceHelper class.
