    my goal is to print a PDF-File directly to a printer without showing the print preview.


    This is what I tried:


    rpd = new RadPrintDocument();

    rpd.PrinterSettings.PrinterName = "printer";

    rViewer = new RadPdfViewer();
    rViewer.DocumentLoaded += rViewer_DocumentLoaded;       


    static void rViewer_DocumentLoaded(object sender, EventArgs e)

          rViewer.Print(false, rpd);



    When I send it directly to the printer ( rViewer.Print(false, rpd); ) it always prints it in portrait-format.

    When I use rViewer.PrintPreview(rpd); and then press the Print-Button, it works. 


    Does anybody have an idea? Thank you!

    Hi Gerhard,

    Thank you for writing.

    You have two alternative options:
    • set the PrintOrientation of your RadPdfViewer instance to LandScape 
      this.radPdfViewer1.PrintOrientation = PrintOrientation.Landscape;
    • Set the Landscape property of the RadPrintDocument to true.
      RadPrintDocument rpd = new RadPrintDocument();
      rpd.AssociatedObject = this.radPdfViewer1;
      rpd.Landscape = true;
      this.radPdfViewer1.Print(false, rpd);

    I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance.
