Hi,

  Is there some way in HTML through which i can change the printer page property to landscape. I want to insert a button in the HTML document for printing, whenever a user clicks that button i want the printing page to be oriented to landscape always. Is it possible?
  I saw @page property of css2, but it seems that it doesn't works in any browser.

Thanks,

-Pandey

No you cannot change the printer properties from a web page.  If the page needs to be printed in landscape then either give teh user instructions on how to print the page, or turn the page into a printer fiendly format like PDF.

BTW,

You have a number of open questions dating back many months.  If you continue to that pattern you may find that the experts become reluctant to offer their time to you.

That property doesn't work in any browser, far as I know.

You don't control the user's printer. They do. And a good thing, too. ;-)

So NO, you can't do what you want.
