PDF Overview

This help article lists all RadScheduler common properties used in the RadScheduler PDF Export.

note

In order to work appropriately, the PDF Export functionality requires the RadScheduler to be in Classic render mode. This is because, internally, a .NET WebBrowser is used to take a snapshot image of the RadScheduler, which is then wrapped in a PDF document. That browser does not support Lightweight rendering, so the RadScheduler must be in Classic render mode.

Common Properties

You can configure the exporting settings for the scheduler through the RadScheduler.ExportSettings section. Furthermore there is an additional sub-category (Pdf) dedicated on various configuration settings for the exported .pdf document. Here are the available properties:

  • FileName - a string specifying the name (without the extension) of the file that will be created. The file extension is automatically added based on the method that is used.

  • OpenInNewWindow - open the exported scheduler in a new page.
