Example source code (C#) that uses  PDFSharp library:

private void ExportToPdf()
  // create a new PDF document
  PdfDocument doc = new PdfDocument();
  doc.Info.Title = "DayPilot Scheduler PDF Export";
  doc.Info.Author = "DayPilot";

  // add a page
  PdfPage page = doc.AddPage();

  // set PDF page properties (size and orientation)
  page.Size = (PageSize) Enum.Parse(typeof (PageSize), ListPageSize.SelectedValue);
  page.Orientation = (PageOrientation)Enum.Parse(typeof(PageOrientation), ListPageOrientation.SelectedValue);

  // create graphics object for PDF page modification
  XGraphics gfx = XGraphics.FromPdfPage(page);

  // write title
  XRect titleRect = new XRect(new XPoint(), gfx.PageSize);
  titleRect.Inflate(-10, -15);
  XFont font = new XFont("Tahoma", 14, XFontStyle.Bold);
  gfx.DrawString("DayPilot Scheduler PDF Export", font, XBrushes.DarkGray, titleRect, XStringFormats.TopCenter);

  // create Scheduler image
  Bitmap bitmap = DayPilotScheduler1.ExportBitmap();

  // add the image to the PDF page
  XImage image = XImage.FromGdiPlusImage(bitmap);
  XRect imageRect = GetPaddedRectForImage(gfx, image, 10);
  double y = 40;
  imageRect.Y = y;
  gfx.DrawImage(image, imageRect);

  // save the PDF file to MemoryStream
  MemoryStream mem = new MemoryStream();
  doc.Save(mem, false);

  // send the output stream to the browser
  Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";
  Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment;filename=scheduler.pdf");

private XRect GetPaddedRectForImage(XGraphics gfx, XImage image, int paddingWidthPct)
  double ratio = image.PixelWidth / (double)image.PixelHeight;
  double width = gfx.PageSize.Width;
  double height = width / ratio;

  XRect imageRect = new XRect(0, 0, width, height);
  imageRect.Scale((100 - paddingWidthPct) / 100.0, (100 - paddingWidthPct) / 100.0);

  double x = (gfx.PageSize.Width - imageRect.Width) / 2;
  imageRect.X = x;

  return imageRect;
