The following example shows how to use this method to resume a paused print queue.

{
    // If there's no good reason for the queue to be paused, resume it and  
    // give user choice to resume or cancel the job.
    Console.WriteLine("The user or someone with administrative rights to the queue" +
         "\nhas paused the job or queue." +
         "\nResume the queue? (Has no effect if queue is not paused.)" +
         "\nEnter \"Y\" to resume, otherwise press return: ");
    String resume = Console.ReadLine();
    if (resume == "Y")
    {
        theJob.HostingPrintQueue.Resume();

        // It is possible the job is also paused. Find out how the user wants to handle that.
        Console.WriteLine("Does user want to resume print job or cancel it?" +
            "\nEnter \"Y\" to resume (any other key cancels the print job): ");
        String userDecision = Console.ReadLine();
        if (userDecision == "Y")
        {
            theJob.Resume();
        }
        else
        {
            theJob.Cancel();
        }
    }//end if the queue should be resumed

}//end HandlePausedJob
