How to stop paper feeding after printing custom paper size

I have a report in VB.NET VS2013 that is 8.5″ x 5.5″ or half page of short bond, before updating to, I can print it successfully without problem


        PrinterLibrary.PrinterLib.SetCustomPaperSize(My.Settings.ORPRINTER, “HALFPAGE”)

        rpt.PrintOptions.PrinterName = My.Settings.ORPRINTER

        rpt.PrintOptions.PaperSize = CType(PrinterLibrary.PrinterLib.GetCustomForm(My.Settings.ORPRINTER, “HALFPAGE”), PaperSize)

        rpt.PrintToPrinter(1, True, 1, 0)

The above code prints my report using a continuous paper without a problem, but after I upgraded, to the latest version, my report is automatically printed in landscape. So I read issues in forums and found out RAS SDK to solve my automatic landscape problem

New Code:

Dim rptClientDoc As CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.ClientDoc.ISCDReportClientDocument

Dim printReportOptions As New CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.Controllers.PrintReportOptions()

Dim newOpts As New CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.ReportDefModel.PrintOptions()

ptClientDoc = rpt.ReportClientDocument

newOpts.DissociatePageSizeAndPrinterPaperSize = True

newOpts.PrinterName = My.Settings.ORPRINTER

newOpts.DriverName = “winspool”

newOpts.PaperSize = CType(PrinterLibrary.PrinterLib.GetCustomForm(“EPSON LQ-300+ /II ESC/P 2”, “HALFPAGE”),                     CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.ReportDefModel.CrPaperSizeEnum)

printReportOptions.PrinterName = My.Settings.ORPRINTER

printReportOptions.AddPrinterPageRange(1, rpt.Rows.Count)

printReportOptions.PaperSize = CType(PrinterLibrary.PrinterLib.GetCustomForm(My.Settings.ORPRINTER, “HALFPAGE”), CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.ReportDefModel.CrPaperSizeEnum)

newOpts.DissociatePageSizeAndPrinterPaperSize = True




The above code prints in portrait now and fits in 8.5 x 5.5, but for multiple pages, it will skip the other half, as if it treats the report as 8.5×11 inches.

My problem now, is how can I print it without feeding the other half.

Thank you.
