Provides a collection of printers for use by upgraded Visual Basic 6.0 printing code.
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Equals||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
The PrinterCollection class exposes a global Printers collection that returns a collection of available printers on the system.
Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Printing.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.
The following example demonstrates how to return a list of printers. It assumes that you have a ListBox control named ListBox1.
Dim i As Integer For i = 0 To Printers.Count - 1 ListBox1.Items.Add(Printers(i).DeviceName) Next
