    Is there a way to set the document's format to landscape ?

    I know we can perform this with the RadPdfProcessing but I also need a header and a footer.


    Actually here is my scenario:

    I need to generate a landscape format document including header, footer and dynamically populated grids with business datas, so should I use RadFixedDoucment or RadFlowDocument ?

    Hello Rémi,

    The RadFlowDocument class is the main class of the RadWordsProcessing library and RadFixedDocument is related to RadPdfProcessing. You could achieve your goal with these libraries, but you should be aware of some differences related to the document formats they are intended to use:

     - With RadPdfProcessing you could mimic the headers/footers functionality, but it is not supported out-of-the-box because there is no such conception in the PDF format.
     - RadWordsProcessing supports Headers/Footers and you could find more information about how to work them in our documentation.
     - Both libraries support tables and you can create and populate them with the desired data.
     - If you consider import/export to different formats, you could check the Formats and Conversion sections in the documentation concerning the controls. Both libraries support export to PDF.

    Regarding the question about changing the orientation of RadFlowDocument, you could find the related information in the Section article. In order to visualize the document in Landscape mode, you could use the Rotate() method.

    Hope this helps.
