I'm trying to print Delphi 3.0 TRichEdit contents to a desired page orientation, without having the user use the TPrinterSetupDialog dialog box.  Since TRichEdit uses the default printer (not the TPrinter object), how can I change the default printer page orientation in code?

Every Delphi program have object Printer. Printer represent default windows printer. You can change Page orientation by setting Orientation property to poLandscape or poPortrait.

That worked fine!

I didn't realize TPrinter represented the default printer.

Thanks for the help.  I appreciate your time.
