Use of Outlook Calendar in a ASP.NET Application (Client Side)
Posted on 2010-09-08
We have an ASP.NET Web Application (.NET 2.0) running on IIS 6.0.
1. The web application allows recording the booking of the building / room. When the customer submits the request we would like to check if in his outlook calendar there is no booking yet. If so, we would like to inform him about the conflict.
2. Same option but based on the building / room, on his outlook profile more than one calendar is available. In fact, one calendar per location.
In summary, if the customer wants to book the Gym Center the first of October from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm, the web site will check locally if on his outlook profile there is a calendar called Gym Center, will check the date and time and will return and message in case of conflict.
Our first findings show that ActiveX could be a solution but for security reason we can't use it.
Thanks a lot for your help.
