Adding a Schedule Using C#

The following is a C# code example that adds a new schedule called "Extended Work Hours," which includes all hours on all days. This code was written as a Windows Console Application. To use this code:

  1. In Visual Studio 2008 or Visual Studio 2005, create a new Visual C# console application.
  2. In Name, provide a name for your project, in Location, modify the path to your project as desired, and then click OK.
  3. On the Project menu, click Add Reference and add a reference to mspfccom.interop.dll.
  4. Copy the following code into the .cs source file and build the project.
    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
    using Microsoft.Isa.Interop;
    namespace CsAddSchedule
    	class AddSchedule
    		const string ScheduleName = "Extended Work Hours";
    		const Int32 Error_AlreadyExists = -2147024713; // 0x800700B7
    		private static FPC m_Root;
    		private static FPCSchedules m_Schedules;
    		private static FPCSchedule m_Schedule;
    		static void Main(string[] args)
    			m_Root = new FPC();
    			// Retrieve the schedules collection.
    			m_Schedules = m_Root.GetContainingArray().RuleElements.Schedules;
    			// Create the new schedule.
    				m_Schedule = m_Schedules.Add(ScheduleName);
    			catch (COMException comEx)
    				if (comEx.ErrorCode == Error_AlreadyExists)
    					m_Schedule = m_Schedules.Item(ScheduleName);
    					Console.WriteLine("Using the existing schedule");
    			// Set the schedule.
    			m_Schedule.Set(FpcScheduleDays.fpcALL_WEEK, FpcScheduleHours.fpcALL_DAY);
    			// Save the changes.
    			m_Schedules.Save(false, true);
  5. Run the application.
