To print report in landscape mode, you need to create .sxw file which contains the format of your report. Sxw provides the format type of report that means you can choose type Portrait or Landscape.Here is the example of it

After that you can convert .sxw file in .rml file, then it will generate report in landscape mode.

You need to create a new report file (.sxw + .rml) and add checkbox inside the report wizard to allow the user to choose..%

not getting "add checkbox inside report wizard". When this wizard will open?

If you aim to create a landscape version from a portrait report (so the user can choose in which mode to print) you need to open a wizard once the user fired the report. This wizard will contain that check box labeled 'Landscape', and you can programmatically rely on it. Have a look at Accounting->Reports->Legal Reports->Accounting Reports->General Ledger for example.
