Hi
I have generated a report using JSP,and there are two buttons in that page
1, "Export to Excel" what it does is It Export the Report Data to Excel Format.
2, "Print" What it does is It format the report page by removing the Button etc.
now the Problem is client wants the "Page Setup" orentation to LandScape as default instead of (Potrait) for both the 2 pages(Export to Excel and Print).

any Idea how to do this through JSP.

Thanks
Naveeth

People keep asking this question.  There's no way to even print with java/jsp code, first of all.  You'd have to use javascript in the final html document.  Secondly, even with javascript all you can do is bring up the print dialog, no more.  Tweaking with printer settings gets into platform/browser dependent issues and the javascript/css/html standards don't address it. You could probably do something in IE (you could probably reformat your disk in IE) but you'd have search and re-search the msdn site and you still wouldn't find any useful info.

savalou is right that you cannot do this with javascript/css/html.

1. POI generates real excel document, I cannot be sure but you might have chance to page orentation with it. http://jakarta.apache.org/poi/

2. I used xsl-fo with FOP to generate pdf file, that for sure you can preset the orentation. http://xml.apache.org/fop/
