I have a vb.net application in which I list files from a directly. These file are either gif for html format. I want to add functionality for users to print html file and allow users to save html file as gif (locally). if the file sare gif format, I'm copying them locally.

With regards to printing html file. I'm using web browser control. however, most of these html files are in landscape mode. when I print using web browser control. it simply prints them in protrait mode and cuts of part of the page.  how do I change it print to landscape.  I have seen a solution on http://support.microsoft.com/kb/236777 where I tried to change the orientation but that doesn't work.

I've already seen the solution you provided in the link. which talks about downloading "WebOCHostCSharp.exe".  I can't even download the file. It's not available on microsoft site.

I have also tried changing the Registry setting for Internet Explorer printer settings to print to landscape mode.  However, these settings are not save in the registry. this is because once I change the IE setting and goto regirty, All other page setting are save in registry "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PageSetup"
I.E. doesn't seems to save this setting.

Hi,

Seems like we have limited options for Web Browser control, especially for printing!

Did you see this MSDN thread - http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/nn-NO/netfxbcl/thread/89f34354-a370-4358-9c90-6b78b04ce134

Hope it helps u...

Hi, roopeshreddy
The link you just send talks about changing the Printer setting via registry.  I'm able to change page header, margins and they all work, but for some reasons the Landscape mode doesn't seems to work
For example, I can change the "header" key value in the following registry key to say something like "Test Header". Then use WebBrowser1.print command and the page that I print has the same header as the registry say.  But Landscape property doesn't work.
 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PageSetup

Hi,

Oops!!!

If the html files are generated by you, then you can try setting the values in CSS!

Does this make sense?
