You can use this method to create a copy of the appointment display. You can use the parameters of the constructor to define the areas of the appointment display that you want to use and to determine the appearance of the appointment display. If you do not specify any parameters, the appointment calendar is displayed with navigation area, appointment overview, task list, and standard toolbar, in accordance with the user settings. You can hide these separate areas using the parameters.
