ColdFusion Print button to default to landscape

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
