If you have PowerPacks installed, it should have come with a PrintForm control. Have you tried it? If so, are you saying that it doesn't work when using other PowerPack controls?

This worked for me:

Add a PrintDialog control to your form in addition to the PrintForm control. Then, add similar code to this:

if (this.printDialog1.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
{
    this.printForm1.PrinterSettings = this.printDialog1.PrinterSettings;
    this.printForm1.Print();
}

Open in new window


The user will be shown the "select printer" dialog, at which point they can change page orientation as well.
