PageOrientation Enumeration

Specifies how pages of content are oriented on print media.

Namespace:  System.Printing
Assembly:  ReachFramework (in ReachFramework.dll)

'Declaration
Public Enumeration PageOrientation
<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>

Member nameDescription
LandscapeContent of the imageable area is rotated on the page 90 degrees counterclockwise from standard (portrait) orientation.
PortraitStandard orientation.
ReverseLandscapeContent of the imageable area is rotated on the page 90 degrees clockwise from standard (portrait) orientation.
ReversePortraitContent of the imageable area is upside down relative to standard (portrait) orientation.
UnknownThe feature (whose options are represented by this enumeration) is set to an option not defined in the Print Schema.

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.

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

				' 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
