Returns date or error.


Returns the occurrence date of an event.
Since all instances of a repeating event have the same UID, we need another way to differentiate between those events. This method returns the date on which this event was originally scheduled to occur. This value will remain the same even if the event has been detached and its start date has changed. For events not part of a repeating pattern, this method will return the same value as startDate.
