Printer Data Capturing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am using C# to try to control the print job and try to capture the print job data to be image. At the moment, I have already controlled the print job such as pause the job and resume the job. However, I cannot capture the data to be image from the print job.
    I wish I would capture the job to be a copy or image. But I don't have any idea. Can anyone here help me solving the problem?

    Thanks a lot

  • As far as i know there are not API functions to get to the actual data in the printer spooler, but even if you could get to that data its most likely going to be in whatever format the printer takes its data if you're lucky its postscript if you're unlucky it is in some proppriatary format,  other then writing your own printer driver (see the windows driver kit for more about that) I doubt there is a way around this.
