This is the code I used ...
Private Sub btnPrint_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnPrint.Click
Dim MyNormalFont As New Font("Arial", 8, FontStyle.Regular)
        Dim PaperK As New PaperKind
        Dim PaperS As New PaperSize
        PaperK = PaperKind.A4
        PaperS.RawKind = PaperK

        Me.PrintDocument1.DefaultPageSettings.Landscape = True
        Me.PrintDocument1.DefaultPageSettings.PaperSize = PaperS
        With Me.PrintDocument1.DefaultPageSettings.Margins
            .Bottom = 50
            .Left = 50
            .Right = 50
            .Top = 50
        End With
        Me.PrintPreviewDialog1.Document = Me.PrintDocument1
        Me.PrintPreviewDialog1.ShowDialog()

End Sub

But when I clicked the btnPrint ...

The papersize of the print preview becomes very small...

why?

What is the proper way of setting the papersize of the print preview to A4?

Hi JackOfPH,

Not sure on this one - but it could be your margin settings - default from memory is cm or inches - either of which is going to be a problem...

Also, try setting your DefaultPageSettings.PaperSize.Height and .Width values manually.

Cheers!

        Dim intY As Integer = Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.Height
        Dim intX As Integer = Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.Width
        Try
            PrintPreviewDialog1.Document = Me.PrintDocument1
            PrintPreviewDialog1.Width = intX
            PrintPreviewDialog1.Height = intY
            PrintPreviewDialog1.ShowDialog()
        Catch exp As Exception

or:

PrintPreviewDialog1.Width = 700
PrintPreviewDialog1.Height = 500
