PrintQueue.IsBusy Property

Gets a value that indicates whether the printing device is busy.

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

'Declaration
Public ReadOnly Property IsBusy As Boolean

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the device is busy; otherwise, false.

Busy does not necessarily mean that it is processing a print job. If the device is a combination printer/fax/copier, then it might be faxing or copying. Compare with the IsProcessing property.

If the device does not support a signal with this meaning, then the property is always false.
