Namespace:  System.Printing
Assembly:  System.Printing (in System.Printing.dll)

public bool IsBlocked { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the print job is blocked; otherwise, false.

The following example shows how to use this property when diagnosing a problem with a print job.

// Check for possible trouble states of a print job using its properties 
internal static void SpotTroubleUsingProperties(PrintSystemJobInfo theJob)
{
    if (theJob.IsBlocked)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("The job is blocked.");
    }
    if (theJob.IsCompleted || theJob.IsPrinted)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("The job has finished. Have user recheck all output bins and be sure the correct printer is being checked.");
    }
    if (theJob.IsDeleted || theJob.IsDeleting)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("The user or someone with administration rights to the queue has deleted the job. It must be resubmitted.");
    }
    if (theJob.IsInError)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("The job has errored.");
    }
    if (theJob.IsOffline)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("The printer is offline. Have user put it online with printer front panel.");
    }
    if (theJob.IsPaperOut)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("The printer is out of paper of the size required by the job. Have user add paper.");
    }

    if (theJob.IsPaused || theJob.HostingPrintQueue.IsPaused)
    {
        HandlePausedJob(theJob);
        //HandlePausedJob is defined in the complete example.
    }

    if (theJob.IsPrinting)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("The job is printing now.");
    }
    if (theJob.IsSpooling)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("The job is spooling now.");
    }
    if (theJob.IsUserInterventionRequired)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("The printer needs human intervention.");
    }
