Hi.

Before open the PrintDialog, setting PirnterData.orientation will not be effective.

for exmaple:

PrintDialog dialog = new PrintDialog(new Shell());
// get default print data
PrinterData printerData = Printer.getDefaultPrinterData();
if (printerData != null)
{
    // set page orientation
    printerData.orientation = PrinterData.LANDSCAPE;
    dialog.setPrinterData(printerData);
}
printerData = dialog.open();


though we set the
printerData.orientation = PrinterData.LANDSCAPE
, In dialog orientaion is set to the printer's Default value.


It tested in Windows7 x64. (6.1.7601)

Interesting. If you use:
PrinterData printerData = new PrinterData();
instead of:
PrinterData printerData = Printer.getDefaultPrinterData();
then it works correctly.
Please open a bug for this, and I will look into it when I have more time.
Thanks!
Carolyn

Thanks Carolyn.

I submitted it as Bug 370515 - PrintDialog.setPrinterData(PrinterData) is not effective when the argument was created by Printer.getDefaultPrinterData().
