Bonjour Jean-Michel,

I believe this is fairly tricking to do. Want you want to do is change the paper size. Unfortunately Delphi does not expose this properties in TPrinter.

I remember doing this a long time ago. This can only be done with some windows api calls. Lookup

GetPrinter, SetPrinter, PRINTER_INFO_2 structure.

The PRINTER_INFO_2 record has a field called pDevMode of type and pDevMove^ has a field called dmPaperSize. This needs to be set to DMPAPER_LEDGER for 17x11.

The windows help files says:

To modify the current printer settings, an application should call GetPrinter to retrieve the current settings into a PRINTER_INFO_2 structure, modify the members of that structure as necessary, and then call the SetPrinter function.

Hope this helps,
