Body (Calendar Namespace)

The Body element is an optional element that contains the body of a calendar item that is retrieved from the server. This element is defined in the Calendar namespace as a child of the airsync:ApplicationData element ([MS-ASCMD] section in Sync command requests and responses ([MS-ASCMD] section

The value of this element is a string data type, as specified in [MS-ASDTYPE] section 2.7.

A client can use the airsync:Truncation element, as specified in [MS-ASCMD] section, to request truncation of a calendar item body. This conserves space and reduces data traffic when synchronizing calendar items. The server sets the BodyTruncated element (section in the Sync response to indicate whether the body of the calendar item has actually been truncated.

When the client requests truncation, only the first part (or none) of each calendar item body is included in a synchronization. A complete calendar item cannot be retrieved after it has been synchronized with a truncated calendar item body.
