Changes the orientation of the page.
The function sets the orientation of a page. The parameter Value must be a multiple of 90 or 0. Positive values rotate the page clockwise, negative counter counter clockwise.
Note that the page will be rotated entirely incl. all objects. The width and height of the page are left unchanged, including the coordinates. Creating landscape paper formats require further such as changing the coordinate system. This can be done with DynaPDF.SetOrientationEx. Another way to create a landscape paper format is to change the bounding box of the page, see DynaPDF.SetBBox.

Default is 0.

See also DynaPDF.SetOrientationEx.
