exportEvents(rcon, arms, ...)

## S3 method for class 'redcapDbConnection'
exportEvents(rcon, arms, ...)

## S3 method for class 'redcapApiConnection'
exportEvents(rcon, arms, ...)

Arguments

rcon

A REDCap connection object as generated by redcapConnection

arms

A vector of arm numbers that you wish to pull events for (by default, all events are pulled).

...

Arguments to be passed to other methods.

Details

The data frame that is returned shows the event name, arm number, days offset, minimum offset, maximum offset, and unique event name.

When this function is called for a classic project, a character string is returned giving the API error message, '400: You cannot export events for classic projects' but without casting an error in R. This is by design and allows more flexible error checks in certain functions
