I'm using iTextSharp to generate PDF documents in my asp.net application. That works great. The only issue I have is when I generate a PDF document with size of a legal paper and print it, the printer use the default paper which is letter size. I have to change the printing options manually in order to print it in legal paper. Is there a way I can specify in which paper size I want the document to print programmatically so that I won't have to do it manually?


I'm using this line of code to specify the page size in iTextSharp:


Document doc = new Document(PageSize.LEGAL.Rotate());

You cannot control the client printer. That would be a huge security problem in the PDF format. It is up to that computer's settings.

The key is to set the viewer preference Choose paper source by PDF page size to true.

writer.AddViewerPreference(PdfName.PICKTRAYBYPDFSIZE, PdfBoolean.PDFTRUE);
