With local options

You can also

Callback

Use the callback function to be notified when printing has been completed (whether or not it was successful). The callback method is not required.

Notes

When using callback, be aware that there's now a 2nd argument for local options. So the callback will be the 3rd arg. Pass null as 2nd arg if you don't want to override the global options.

this.$htmlToPaper('printMe', null, () => {
  console.log('Printing completed or was cancelled!');
});

FAQ

How to print in landscape

In the global option, you can pass a css with the following:

@media print {
  @page {
    size: landscape
  }
}

Then, inject the custom css in the styles option like so:

const options = {
  styles: [
    'https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.0.0/css/bootstrap.min.css',
    './path/to/custom.css' // <- inject here
  ]
}

This can also be done by using the local option.
