Preventing the user from using a virtual printer when printing in a metro app

    Question

  • Well, the title says pretty much everything... I'm developing a metro app that has printing capability. And I want to know if there is a way of preventing the user from using a virtual printer to print the content of the app. The options that I tested unsuccessfully so far are:

    - Filter the list of print devices from the charms list;

    - Capture one of the events of the print task and try to identify the printer and then cancel the print job.

    If one of this approaches or any other one is possible, please let me know.

    Thanks in advance.
