Printing userform in landscape on one page only


L

Luke

I found the code below that has enabled me to print a userform in landscape
mode. However, it is printing it two pages wide instead of one, cutting off
the last bit of the right side of the form and printing it on page two. I
tried adding the following just after the part where it sets the orientation
to landscape:

ActiveSheet.PageSetup.FitToPagesWide = 1
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.FitToPagesTall = 1

It didn't make a difference, however, and still printed out on two pages.
Can anyone tell me what I need to change or add to the code below in order to
get the userform to print on only one page?

Modification of code originally posted by
"Orlando Magalhães Filho" <[email protected]>

Modified to capture just the userform (not the whole window).

In a general module:

Declare Sub keybd_event Lib "user32" (ByVal bVk As Byte, _
ByVal bScan As Byte, ByVal dwFlags As Long, ByVal dwExtraInfo As Long)

Public Const VK_SNAPSHOT = 44
Public Const VK_LMENU = 164
Public Const KEYEVENTF_KEYUP = 2
Public Const KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY = 1


Sub Test()
UserForm1.Show
End Sub


In the userform module:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
' keybd_event VK_SNAPSHOT, 0, 0, 0
DoEvents
keybd_event VK_LMENU, 0, KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY, 0
keybd_event VK_SNAPSHOT, 0, KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY, 0
keybd_event VK_SNAPSHOT, 0, KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY + _
KEYEVENTF_KEYUP, 0
keybd_event VK_LMENU, 0, KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY + _
KEYEVENTF_KEYUP, 0
DoEvents
Workbooks.Add
Application.Wait Now + TimeValue("00:00:01")
ActiveSheet.PasteSpecial Format:="Bitmap", Link:=False, _
DisplayAsIcon:=False
ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Select
'added to force landscape
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.orientation = xlLandscape
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1
ActiveWorkbook.Close False
End Sub

Try including -

ActiveSheet.PageSetup.Zoom = False

Never mind. Turns out I had to set the margins as well before it would print
solely on one page.
