Landscape printing

Hi, I'm trying to print a text report from an application. It works
fine, except in landscape mode, which it seems to ignore. I have a
function that handles the PrintPage even for the PrintDocument, and I
even tried forcing it to print in landscape mode by adding:
ev.PageSettings .Landscape = True
(where ev is the parameter: ByVal ev As
System.Drawing. Printing.PrintP ageEventArgs)
I also tried
printDoc.Defaul tPageSettings.L andscape = True
(where printDoc is a PrintDocument that is going to be printed)

But it does not print in portrait/landscape mode. I'm not sure why.
This is kinda serious because several reports are required to be in
landscape mode only.

I'm using VB 2005, and the report's data source is a simple (but wide
;) ) text file.

I fixed the problem:

It seems I have to set landscape mode BEFORE I set the PrintPage event
handler, like this:
Me.printDoc.Def aultPageSetting s.Landscape = True
AddHandler printDoc.PrintP age, AddressOf printPage

Well, hope this helps anyone else.

I tried posting earlier and it never showed up.. I have a simple program to print a text file. I need to know how to change the page settings to landscape if it is not already in ladnscape mode. I do not want to use a dialog to do it and this appears the only way you can do it. I just need it to spit out the print in landscape orientation. Why is this so hard to do for something that should be easy.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
