I have the recurrence rule for the recurring appointments stored in a db, and I want the user to be able to edit the rule at a later date through the ejRecurrenceEditor.
The appointments are opened in a custom modal window when editing them in the Schedule.

My question is, how do you set the initial values of all the components in the ejRecurrenceEditor?
I want to be able to initialize the ejRecurrenceEditor based on simple and complex recurrence rules such as:
In the following code snippet I would like to be able to 'apply' my recurrence rule to the recurrence editor, either when initilizing the ejRecurrenceEditor or when the create event is called.

            startDate: new Date(startDate),
            frequencies: ["daily", "weekly", "monthly", "yearly", "everyweekday"],
            selectedRecurrenceType: 0,
            locale: "da-DK",
            dateFormat: "yyyy-MM-dd",           
            create: function (args) {
                var ruleFromDB = "FREQ=WEEKLY;INTERVAL=2;BYDAY=MO";
                // set component based on above rule

Hi Toke,    
Greetings from Syncfusion. 
Kindly use the below code example to achieve your requirement. 
$(function () { 
        create: "onChange", 
function onChange(args) { 
    var recurrenceObj = $("#RecurrenceEditor").data("ejRecurrenceEditor");

That was easier than expected, thank you for the swift response.

Worth noting (for anyone reading this at a later date) that the recurrence rule may not be an empty string. The following lines will result in a difficult to decipher error.

var recurrenceRule = "";
var recObj = $("#RecurrenceEditor").data("ejRecurrenceEditor");

HI Toke. 
We are happy that our solution fulfilled your requirement. 
Assigning empty recurrence rule will render the recurrence editor like below.
