PageOrientation Enumeration


Specifies how pages of content are oriented on print media.

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

public enum PageOrientation

Member nameDescription

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


Standard orientation.


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


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


The 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 NOTINBUILD: 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.
