Exceptions

Examples

The following code example sets a document's default page orientation to landscape through the PrintDocument.DefaultPageSettings property, and prints the document. The example has three prerequisites:

  • A variable named filePath has been set to the path of the file to print.

  • A method named pd_PrintPage, which handles the PrintPage event, has been defined.

  • A variable named printer has been set to the printer's name.

Use the System.Drawing, System.Drawing.Printing, and System.IO namespaces for this example.

public:
   void Printing()
   {
      try
      {
         streamToPrint = gcnew StreamReader( filePath );
         try
         {
            printFont = gcnew Font( "Arial",10 );
            PrintDocument^ pd = gcnew PrintDocument;
            pd->PrintPage += gcnew PrintPageEventHandler(
               this, &Sample::pd_PrintPage );
            pd->PrinterSettings->PrinterName = printer;
            // Set the page orientation to landscape.
            pd->DefaultPageSettings->Landscape = true;
            pd->Print();
         }
         finally
         {
            streamToPrint->Close();
         }
      }
      catch ( Exception^ ex ) 
      {
         MessageBox::Show( ex->Message );
      }
   }
public void Printing() {
   try {
     streamToPrint = new StreamReader (filePath);
     try {
       printFont = new Font("Arial", 10);
       PrintDocument pd = new PrintDocument(); 
       pd.PrintPage += new PrintPageEventHandler(pd_PrintPage);
       pd.PrinterSettings.PrinterName = printer;
       // Set the page orientation to landscape.
       pd.DefaultPageSettings.Landscape = true;
       pd.Print();
     } 
     finally {
       streamToPrint.Close() ;
     }
   } 
   catch(Exception ex) { 
     MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
   }
 }
 
Public Sub Printing()
    Try
        streamToPrint = New StreamReader(filePath)
        Try
            printFont = New Font("Arial", 10)
            Dim pd As New PrintDocument()
            AddHandler pd.PrintPage, AddressOf pd_PrintPage
            pd.PrinterSettings.PrinterName = printer
            ' Set the page orientation to landscape.
            pd.DefaultPageSettings.Landscape = True
            pd.Print()
        Finally
            streamToPrint.Close()
        End Try
    Catch ex As Exception
        MessageBox.Show(ex.Message)
    End Try
End Sub
       

Remarks

You can use the PrinterSettings.LandscapeAngle property to determine the angle, in degrees, that the portrait orientation is rotated to produce the landscape orientation.
