Public Enum PageOrientation
Inheritance

Fields

Landscape Landscape Landscape Landscape 1

Content of the imageable area is rotated on the page 90 degrees counterclockwise from standard (portrait) orientation.

Portrait Portrait Portrait Portrait 2

Standard orientation.

ReverseLandscape ReverseLandscape ReverseLandscape ReverseLandscape 3

Content of the imageable area is rotated on the page 90 degrees clockwise from standard (portrait) orientation.

ReversePortrait ReversePortrait ReversePortrait ReversePortrait 4

Content of the imageable area is upside down relative to standard (portrait) orientation.

Unknown Unknown Unknown Unknown 0

The feature (whose options are represented by this enumeration) is set to an option not defined in the Print Schema.

Examples

The following example shows how to use this enumeration to set PrintTicket values.

// Use different PrintTickets for different FixedDocuments.
PrintTicket ptFD = new PrintTicket();

if (_firstDocumentPrintTicket <= 1)
{   // Print the first document in black/white and in portrait
    // orientation.  Since the PrintTicket at the
    // FixedDocumentSequence level already specifies portrait
    // orientation, this FixedDocument can just inherit that
    // setting without having to set it again.
    ptFD.PageOrientation = PageOrientation.Portrait;
    ptFD.OutputColor = OutputColor.Monochrome;
    _firstDocumentPrintTicket++;
}

else // if (_firstDocumentPrintTicket > 1)
{   // Print the second document in color and in landscape
    // orientation.  Since the PrintTicket at the
    // FixedDocumentSequence level already specifies portrait
    // orientation, this FixedDocument needs to set its
    // PrintTicket with landscape orientation in order to
    // override the higher level setting.
    ptFD.PageOrientation = PageOrientation.Landscape;
    ptFD.OutputColor = OutputColor.Color;
}
' Use different PrintTickets for different FixedDocuments.
Dim ptFD As New PrintTicket()

If _firstDocumentPrintTicket <= 1 Then
    ' orientation.  Since the PrintTicket at the
    ' FixedDocumentSequence level already specifies portrait
    ' orientation, this FixedDocument can just inherit that
    ' setting without having to set it again.
    ptFD.PageOrientation = PageOrientation.Portrait
    ptFD.OutputColor = OutputColor.Monochrome
    _firstDocumentPrintTicket += 1

Else ' if (_firstDocumentPrintTicket > 1)
    ' orientation.  Since the PrintTicket at the
    ' FixedDocumentSequence level already specifies portrait
    ' orientation, this FixedDocument needs to set its
    ' PrintTicket with landscape orientation in order to
    ' override the higher level setting.
    ptFD.PageOrientation = PageOrientation.Landscape
    ptFD.OutputColor = OutputColor.Color
End If

Remarks

Use the values of this type primarily for these purposes:

The Unknown value is never used in properties of PrintCapabilities objects.

You should never set a PrintTicket property to Unknown. If some other PrintTicket producing application has created a PrintTicket document that sets the orientation feature to an unrecognized option (that is, an option that is not defined in the Print Schema), then a PrintTicket object in your application that is constructed with that document will have Unknown as the value of the PageOrientation property.

Although the PrintTicket and PrintCapabilities classes cannot be inherited, you can extend the Print Schema to recognize print device features that are not accounted for in the PrintTicket or PrintCapabilities classes. For more information see How to: Extend the Print Schema and Create New Print System Classes.
