Initiates the PDF export and returns a promise. Also triggers the pdfExport event.

Calling this method may trip the built-in browser pop-up blocker. To avoid that, call this method as a response to an end-user action, e.g. a button click.

ReturnsPromise A promise that will be resolved when the export completes. The same promise is available in the pdfExport event arguments.

Example - manually initiate PDF export

<button id="export">Export to PDF</button>
<div id="scheduler"></div>
  toolbar: ["pdf"],
  date: new Date("2013/6/6"),
  dataSource: [
      id: 1,
      start: new Date("2013/6/6 08:00 AM"),
      end: new Date("2013/6/6 09:00 AM"),
      title: "Interview"
$("#export").click(function(e) {
    var scheduler = $("#scheduler").data("kendoScheduler");
