Hello, I have the following code to print the data from a datagridview, it also has a simple header and footer.  I need this to print in landscape at all times.  What would I need to add and/or change to accomplish this?

Private Sub PrintDocument1_BeginPrint(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Drawing.Printing.PrintEventArgs) Handles PrintDocument1.BeginPrint

        oStringFormat = New StringFormat
        oStringFormat.Alignment = StringAlignment.Near
        oStringFormat.LineAlignment = StringAlignment.Center
        oStringFormat.Trimming = StringTrimming.EllipsisCharacter

        oStringFormatComboBox = New StringFormat
        oStringFormatComboBox.LineAlignment = StringAlignment.Center
        oStringFormatComboBox.FormatFlags = StringFormatFlags.NoWrap
        oStringFormatComboBox.Trimming = StringTrimming.EllipsisCharacter

        oButton = New Button
        oCheckbox = New CheckBox
        oComboBox = New ComboBox

        nTotalWidth = 0
        For Each oColumn As DataGridViewColumn In DataGridView1.Columns

            nTotalWidth += oColumn.Width

        Next
        nPageNo = 1
        NewPage = True
        nRowPos = 0

    End Sub

    Private Sub PrintDocument1_PrintPage(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Drawing.Printing.PrintPageEventArgs) Handles PrintDocument1.PrintPage

        Static oColumnLefts As New ArrayList

        Dim nWidth, i, nRowsPerPage As Int16

            For Each oColumn As DataGridViewColumn In DataGridView1.Columns

                nWidth = CType(Math.Floor(oColumn.Width / nTotalWidth * nTotalWidth * (e.MarginBounds.Width / nTotalWidth)), Int16)

                nHeight = e.Graphics.MeasureString(oColumn.HeaderText, oColumn.InheritedStyle.Font, nWidth).Height + 11

                oColumnLefts.Add(nLeft)
