Format Definition

This property parameter is defined by the following notation: rangeparam = "RANGE" "=" "THISANDFUTURE" ; To specify the instance specified by the recurrence identifier ; and all subsequent recurrence instances.

This parameter can be specified on a property that specifies a recurrence identifier. The parameter specifies the effective range of recurrence instances that is specified by the property. The effective range is from the recurrence identifier specified by the property. If this parameter is not specified on an allowed property, then the default range is the single instance specified by the recurrence identifier value of the property. The parameter value can only be "THISANDFUTURE" to indicate a range defined by the recurrence identifier and all subsequent instances. The value "THISANDPRIOR" is deprecated by this revision of iCalendar and MUST NOT be generated by applications.
