Introduction

Here I will discuss a .NET vCard API for creating and parsing vCards. Basically, a vCard is an electronic business card that can store such elements as Name, Phones, Photo, Emails, etc. This article assumes that you already have a little knowledge about vCard. If not, then for detailed information about vCard see RFC 2426. There is nothing more to tell you. Just get started by launching the vCard viewer application. I have made a well-commented and clear example application that is available for download at the top of this article. I hope that you don't need any more. vCard code is part of the LumiSoft.Net library. The LumiSoft.Net.Mime.vCard namespace contains all vCard related classes. You can get latest here and join in discussions on the forum.
