How can I set the measurment unit of a PageSetupDialog to inches programatically?
I have a PageSetupDialog for my PrindtDocument that works fine when the measurment unit is in Inches but on some computers the measurment unit is set to millimeters according to regional setting of the computer and my print mix up on those computer. I don't want to chage the regional setting of computers but programatically I want to set the measurment unit to inches for my PagesetupDialog.
