.NET class to create and maintain vCard information


In a previous article, .NET class to create and maintain vCalendar information, I created a class to export calendar information to a vCalendar file. I have now also created an class to export contact information to a vCard file format. Again, I have tried to stick with the specs, but also tried to adapt the class to the way MS Outlook understands this format.

I am having some problems including the code directly in the article, so here is a brief overview of the vCard class.


Public Class vCard
    Public Class vEmails
    End Class

    Public Class vEmail
    End Class

    Public Class vURLs
    End Class

    Public Class vURL
    End Class

    Public Class vTelephones
    End Class

    Public Class vTelephone
    End Class

    Public Class vAddresss
    End Class

    Public Class vAddress
    End Class

    Public Enum vLocations
    End Enum

    Public Enum vAddressTypes
        PARCEL  'Parcel post'
        DOM     'Domestic'
        INT     'International'
    End Enum

    Public Enum vPhoneTypes
    End Enum
End Class
