SchedulerPrintStyles

Printing in RadScheduler is performed by objects of type SchedulerPrintStyle. The print style object provides a set of options that define the date range of printing and the appearance of the printed pages.

SchedulerPrintStyle is an abstract class and cannot be instantiated directly. You should use one of the following implementations: SchedulerDailyPrintStyle,SchedulerWeeklyPrintStyle, SchedulerMonthlyPrintStyle, SchedulerDetailsPrintStyle.

To set a RadScheduler with a print style:

Daily Print Style

SchedulerPrintStyle schedulerPrintStyle = new SchedulerDailyPrintStyle();
this.radScheduler1.PrintStyle = schedulerPrintStyle;

Dim schedulerPrintStyle As New SchedulerDailyPrintStyle()
Me.RadScheduler1.PrintStyle = schedulerPrintStyle

SchedulerPrintStyle has the following properties:

  • DateStartRange and DateEndRange: Allows you to specify the date range which should be printed:

Specify Date Range

schedulerPrintStyle.DateStartRange = DateTime.Today;
schedulerPrintStyle.DateEndRange = DateTime.Today.AddDays(6);

schedulerPrintStyle.DateStartRange = DateTime.Today
schedulerPrintStyle.DateEndRange = DateTime.Today.AddDays(6)

  • TimeStartRange and TimeEndRange: Allows you to specify the time frame which for every day in the date range - i.e. the time frame which will be printed for each date in the date range period:

Specify Time Frame

schedulerPrintStyle.TimeStartRange = TimeSpan.FromHours(7);
schedulerPrintStyle.TimeEndRange = TimeSpan.FromHours(19);

schedulerPrintStyle.TimeStartRange = TimeSpan.FromHours(7)
schedulerPrintStyle.TimeEndRange = TimeSpan.FromHours(19)

  • AppointmentFont, DateHeadingFont and PageHeadingFont allow you to specify the fonts for the appointments, dates and page headers respectively:

Set Font

schedulerPrintStyle.AppointmentFont = new Font("Segoe UI Light", 8, FontStyle.Regular);
schedulerPrintStyle.DateHeadingFont = new Font("Segoe UI Light", 12, FontStyle.Regular);
schedulerPrintStyle.PageHeadingFont = new Font("Segoe UI Light", 16, FontStyle.Regular);

schedulerPrintStyle.AppointmentFont = New Font("Segoe UI Light", 8, FontStyle.Regular)
schedulerPrintStyle.DateHeadingFont = New Font("Segoe UI Light", 12, FontStyle.Regular)
schedulerPrintStyle.PageHeadingFont = New Font("Segoe UI Light", 16, FontStyle.Regular)

  • You can also specify which visual parts of the page to be printed - page title, calendar in the page title, notes area, etc:

Specify Visual Parts

schedulerPrintStyle.DrawPageTitle = true;
schedulerPrintStyle.DrawPageTitleCalendar = true;
schedulerPrintStyle.ShowLinedNotesArea = true;
schedulerPrintStyle.ShowNotesArea = true;

schedulerPrintStyle.DrawPageTitle = True
schedulerPrintStyle.DrawPageTitleCalendar = True
schedulerPrintStyle.ShowLinedNotesArea = True
schedulerPrintStyle.ShowNotesArea = True

  • To modify the size of the visual areas use:

Area Size

schedulerPrintStyle.NotesAreaWidth = 200;
schedulerPrintStyle.HeadingAreaHeight = 100;

schedulerPrintStyle.NotesAreaWidth = 200
schedulerPrintStyle.HeadingAreaHeight = 100

dailyStyle.HoursColumnWidth = 100;
dailyStyle.MaxAllDayAreaHeight = 100;
dailyStyle.AllDayAppointmentHeight = 20;
dailyStyle.TwoPagesPerDay = true;

Dim dailyStyle As New SchedulerDailyPrintStyle()
dailyStyle.HoursColumnWidth = 100
dailyStyle.MaxAllDayAreaHeight = 100
dailyStyle.AllDayAppointmentHeight = 20
dailyStyle.TwoPagesPerDay = True
