{from Delphi help}

procedure Print; virtual;


Call  Print to print  the form. Print  uses the GetFormImage method to obtain a bitmap of the form and draws that to the printer’s HDC.


procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  //Or Form1.Print;

thanks, but for some reason it doesnt print landscape view. I tried it with a website and it does do landscape view then, but not in delphi. Is there code i can add for it to print landscape ?
