I have a small C# Windows app that should limit users to always printing in "Portrait" orientation with a paper size of 8.5/11.

My question is what is the best way to do this?

1. Is it possible to disable the Landscape option that displays on the Print - Properties page?
2. Is it possible to limit the Paper Size options that display on the Print - Properties page to 8.5/11? (right now it displays A4, A5, B5, DL Envelope, etc...none of which would be supported by this app).

I realize this is the VB.Net topic area but I have posted this question to the C# area and have no replies yet so I was wondering if any VB.Net developers have some info. on this.

Thanks for your time,

Well i do not know if you can limit the display of these options but yes you can check if the values set by the user is valid for your case or not. i.e. when the user interacts with the Dialog box sets the Orientation values etc. and clicks Print at that time you can check the values validate it and if it is not proper you can show a message and reopen the Dialog box. That will not be very approppriate though but if it suits you fine..
