See the sample code in MSDN topic CWinApp::GetPrinterDeviceDefaults.

>> How can we set Orientation(Landscape or Portrait) using CPageSetupDialog.

After construction, you can access the m_psd member variable. Allocate a DEVMODE structure with GlobalAlloc(), set the fields properly (it seems you're interested in dmOrientation only, but I think you'll have to fill the rest as well), put the handle in m_psd.hDevMode and call DoModal(). Remember to free that memory when you're done.

After DoModal(), call GetDevMode(), read the dmOrientation field (don't forget to call GlobalUnlock() on the returned pointer)

Code Snippet from my application, Hope this helps

BOOL CMyApp::SetPrinterOrientation(BOOL bLandscape)
{
  if (!m_hDevMode) return FALSE;

  DEVMODE *pstDevMode = (DEVMODE *)GlobalLock(m_hDevMode);

  pstDevMode->dmFields |= DM_ORIENTATION;

  pstDevMode->dmOrientation = bLandscape ? DMORIENT_LANDSCAPE : DMORIENT_PORTRAIT;

  GlobalUnlock(m_hDevMode);

  return TRUE;
}


/// Or you can use this function
/// param can be DMORIENT_LANDSCAPE
void CMyApp::SetPrinterOrientation(int nOri)
{
      PRINTDLG   pd;
      
      pd.lStructSize = (DWORD) sizeof(PRINTDLG);
      if (GetPrinterDeviceDefaults(&pd)){
            DEVMODE FAR* pDevMode = (DEVMODE FAR*)::GlobalLock(m_hDevMode);
             
            if (pDevMode){
                  pDevMode->dmOrientation = nOri;
                  
                  ::GlobalUnlock(m_hDevNames);
                  ::GlobalUnlock(m_hDevMode);
            }
      }
}
