PrintCapabilities.PagesPerSheetDirectionCapability Property

Gets a collection of values that identify what patterns a printer supports for presenting multiple pages on a single side of a sheet of paper.

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

public ReadOnlyCollection<PagesPerSheetDirection> PagesPerSheetDirectionCapability { get; }
You cannot set this property in XAML.

For example, some printers can present pages in left-to-right rows with the rows stacked top-to-bottom. Another pattern, which some printers support, is right-to-left rows with the rows stacked bottom-to-top.

If the printer does not support multiple pages per sheet, the collection is empty.

This property corresponds to the PresentationDirection subfeature of the Print Schema's JobNUpAllDocumentsContiguously keyword, not the DocumentNUp keyword.
