iTextsharp landscape document

I am trying to create Landscape PDF using iTextSharp but It is still showing portrait. I am using following code with rotate:

Document document = new Document(PageSize.A4, 0, 0, 150, 20);
FileStream msReport = new FileStream(Server.MapPath("~/PDFS/") + "Sample1.pdf", FileMode.Create);

try
{
// creation of the different writers
PdfWriter writer = PdfWriter.GetInstance(document, msReport);

document.Open();

PdfPTable PdfTable = new PdfPTable(1);
PdfTable.SpacingBefore = 30f;


PdfPCell PdfPCell = null;

Font fontCategoryheader = new Font(Font.HELVETICA, 10f, Font.BOLD, Color.BLACK);

for (int i = 0; i < 20; i++)
{
PdfPCell = new PdfPCell(new Phrase(new Chunk("Sales Manager: ", fontCategoryheader)));
PdfPCell.BorderWidth = 0;
PdfPCell.HorizontalAlignment = Element.ALIGN_LEFT;

if (i % 2 == 0)
PdfPCell.BackgroundColor = Color.LIGHT_GRAY;

PdfPCell.PaddingBottom = 5f;
PdfPCell.PaddingLeft = 2f;
PdfPCell.PaddingTop = 4f;
PdfPCell.PaddingRight = 4f;
PdfTable.AddCell(PdfPCell);
}

document.Add(PdfTable);
document.NewPage();

}
catch (Exception ex)
{
Console.Error.WriteLine(ex.Message);
}

finally
{
// we close the document
document.Close();
}


Please suggest solution.

Thanks.

Answer

Try this

Document Doc = new Document(new Rectangle(288f, 144f), 10, 10, 10, 10);
Doc.SetPageSize(iTextSharp.text.PageSize.A4.Rotate());

you might also need this to expand a table to max width.

var _pdf_table = new PdfPTable(2); // table with two  columns
PdfPCell hc = new PdfPCell();
_pdf_table.WidthPercentage = 100; //table width to 100per
_pdf_table.SetTotalWidth(new float[] { 25, iTextSharp.text.PageSize.A4.Rotate().Width - 25 });// width of each column

Regards.
