Hi!
I am using VC++ 5.0 with MFC.
I'd like to know how and when I have to manipulate the DEVMODE struct of my CPrintDialog in order to set the print orientation to either landscape or portrait.
Thanks a bundle,

Daniel

this is an example of one of my pgm

      LPDEVMODE  pDvMd = pInfo->m_pPD->GetDevMode();
//Get the devmode struct
      if(pInfo->m_nCurPage >3)//choose when it is usefull to change
      {
            pDvMd->dmOrientation = DMORIENT_PORTRAIT;
      }
      else
      {
            pDvMd->dmOrientation = DMORIENT_PORTRAIT;
      }
      pDC->ResetDC(pDvMd);
//      GlobalFree(pDvMd); // do not destroy the struct is is a documentation error

The When is : override the OnPrepareDC function of your derived Cview class.

void CMyView::OnPrepareDC(CDC* pDC, CPrintInfo* pInfo)
{
.
}

Thanks for your help, both of you.
At first, it did not work, because I did not have a page setup dialog object constructed. But after that modification, it work as advertised.
