Ubiquitous PDF: Google Calendar’s PDF widget

Speaking of PDF ubiquity — to which this space is dedicated — Google’s current Google Calendar beta now offers a PDF-based print preview function. Users simply need to open their Google Calendar, navigate to the time period they would like to display and hit the ‘Print my calendar’ button. A PDF will be generated automatically, showing the current calendar sheet.

Once this PDF is saved and opened in Adobe Reader, users can see that the PDF was created using the free iText Java-based PDF creation library.

More information on iText can be found on the developer’s Web site.
