Value Name



This value type is used to identify values that contain a uniform resource identifier (URI) type of reference to the property value.

Format Definition

This value type is defined by the following notation:

This value type might be used to reference binary information, for values that are large, or otherwise undesirable to include directly in the iCalendar object.

Property values with this value type MUST follow the generic URI syntax defined in [RFC3986].

Need to test your iCalendar feeds?

The iCalendar Validator provides developers and testers a method to validate their iCalendar feeds, which can take data from either a URL, file or text snippet and compare it against the RFC 5545 specification.  We believe we have one of the best iCalendar validation tools available on the internet. More information about the validator can be found here.
