        : base(false) {
        // Print information on appointments which do not fall in the PrintTime interval.
        base.PrintAllAppointments = true;
        // Hide the reference mini-calendar.
        base.CalendarHeaderVisible = false;
        // Do not use time slots displayed in the Day view of the SchedulerControl.
        base.UseActiveViewTimeScale = false;
        // Determine the row height (specify the time interval of a time slot).
        base.TimeSlots.Clear();
        base.TimeSlots.Add(TimeSpan.FromMinutes(15), "15Minutes");
        // Specify the time interval to print.
