How to: Create a Recurrent Task

This content is outdated and is no longer being maintained. It is provided as a courtesy for individuals who are still using these technologies. This page may contain URLs that were valid when originally published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.

This example creates a recurrent task.

This code sample creates a TaskItem object and uses the GetRecurrencePattern method of the TaskItem to make the task a recurrent task.

If you use Microsoft Visual Studio to test this code sample, you must first add a reference to the Microsoft Outlook 12.0 Object Library component and specify the Outlook variable when you import the Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook namespace. The Imports or using statements must not occur right before the functions in the Code section but must be added before the public Class declaration. The following lines of code show how to do the import and assignment in Visual Basic and in C#:

using Outlook = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook;
private void CreateRecurringTask()
    Outlook.TaskItem task = Application.CreateItem(
        Outlook.OlItemType.olTaskItem) as Outlook.TaskItem;
    task.Subject = "Tax Preparation";
    task.StartDate = DateTime.Parse("4/1/2007 8:00 AM");
    task.DueDate = DateTime.Parse("4/15/2007 8:00 AM");
    Outlook.RecurrencePattern pattern =
    pattern.RecurrenceType = Outlook.OlRecurrenceType.olRecursYearly;
    pattern.PatternStartDate = DateTime.Parse("4/1/2007");
    pattern.NoEndDate = true;
    task.ReminderSet = true;
    task.ReminderTime = DateTime.Parse("4/1/2007 8:00 AM");
