PrintQueue.GetPrintCapabilitiesAsXml Method (PrintTicket)

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

public MemoryStream GetPrintCapabilitiesAsXml(
	PrintTicket printTicket
)

Parameters

printTicket
Type: System.Printing.PrintTicket

A print ticket that provides the basis on which the print capabilities are reported.

Return Value

Type: System.IO.MemoryStream
A MemoryStream specifying the printer's capabilities by using the XML schema "PrintCapabilities," a part of the Print Schema system.

ExceptionCondition
PrintQueueException

The print capabilities could not be retrieved.

ArgumentException

printTicket is not well-formed.

The PrintTicket parameter is used as the basis on which to construct the print capabilities XML. For example, suppose the printer supported only media types A and B from input bin 1 and it only supported media type C from input bin 2. If the printTicket parameter specified input bin 1, then the print capabilities XML that is returned would include all three media types, but it would report type C as "constrained." If the printTicket parameter specified input bin 2, then the print capabilities XML that is returned would include all three media types, but it would report types A and B as "constrained." See the Print Schema for more information on constraints.

If printTicket is null, the UserPrintTicket is used.
