Definition

Gets or sets a value indicating how the page content is oriented for printing.

public:
 property Nullable<System::Printing::PageOrientation> PageOrientation { Nullable<System::Printing::PageOrientation> get(); void set(Nullable<System::Printing::PageOrientation> value); };
public Nullable<System.Printing.PageOrientation> PageOrientation { get; set; }
member this.PageOrientation : Nullable<System.Printing.PageOrientation> with get, set
Public Property PageOrientation As Nullable(Of PageOrientation)

Property Value

A PageOrientation value specifying how page content is oriented, for example, Landscape or ReversePortrait.

Exceptions

Calling code has attempted to set the property to a value that is not in the PageOrientation enumeration.

Examples

The following example shows how to use this property to configure a print job.

// 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

A null value for this property means that this feature setting is not specified. Also, when the value is null, the XML versions of the PrintTicket (see SaveTo and GetXmlStream) will not contain any markup for this feature.

This property corresponds to the Print Schema's PageOrientation keyword.

You can test for the options that the printer supports by using the PageOrientationCapability property.
