- (EKCalendar *) calDAVCalendarWithTitleContaining :(NSString *)paramDescription{ EKCalendar *result = nil; EKEventStore *eventStore = [[EKEventStore alloc] init]; for (EKCalendar *thisCalendar in eventStore.calendars){ if (thisCalendar.type == EKCalendarTypeCalDAV){ if ([thisCalendar.title rangeOfString:paramDescription].location != NSNotFound){ return thisCalendar; } } } return result; } - (void) enumerateTodayEvents{ /* Find a calendar to base our search on */ EKCalendar *targetCalendar = [self calDAVCalendarWithTitleContaining:@"vandad.np@gmail.com"]; /* If we could not find a CalDAV calendar that we were looking for, then we will abort the operation */ if (targetCalendar == nil){ NSLog(@"No CalDAV calendars were found."); return; } /* We have to pass an array of calendars to the event store to search */ NSArray *targetCalendars = [[NSArray alloc] initWithObjects:targetCalendar, nil]; /* Instantiate the event store */ EKEventStore *eventStore = [[EKEventStore alloc] init]; /* Construct the starting date for today */ NSDate *startDate ...
