Please view my print button code below. I'm trying to default to landscape without success.

Is there another method via ColdFusion instead of windows.print to accomplish landscape?


<style type="text/css">
    @media print {
      .noprint {
        display: none;
        size:landscape
         }
    }
  </style>


<input type='button' value='Print'   class='noprint' onClick='window.print()' style='width: 50'>

try this:

Using landscape will ONLY work in Internet Explorer.

<style type="text/css" media="print">
.landScape
{
 width: 100%;
 height: 100%;
 margin: 0% 0% 0% 0%;
 filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(Rotation=3);
}
.noPrint
{
     display: none;
}
</style>

<body class="landScape">
 <form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
  <!--  Markup -->

  <input type="button" class="noPrint" value="Print" onclick="JavaScript:window.print();" >
 </form>
</body>

try with different rotations using a check if LT 9

filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(rotation=1);
rotation=1 Content is rotated 90 degrees.

rotation=2 Content is rotated 180 degrees.

rotation=3 Content is rotated 270 degrees.

Might work?

you ca make a check in html file itself

check this post of mine:

You can use this custom Tag to detect Browser and using a cffif condition you can add different styles for the code

just add dump to see what values you are getting,
