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)
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 2008. 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
