RecurrenceRule.TryParse - it would be helpful to be able to find out why a rule fails to parse
When calling Telerik.Web.UI.RecurrenceRule.TryParse and it returns false - there is no way to know what is actually wrong with the rule to parse.

Perhaps a Parse( ) method is also provided that will throw an exception with details of what is wrong with the specified string recurrence rule.

Hello Charles,

The RecurrenceRule does not always fail with an exception. It uses a lot of Regular Expressions internally to parse each section of the recurrence rule. You can access the source code of the controls from your account:

Once you download the source code, you can create a custom Recurrence Rule parser, which you can use for debugging purposes. The original file is located here:

  • Telerik.Web.UI\Scheduler\RecurrenceRule\RecurrenceRule.cs
