FreePrinterNotifyInfo function

The FreePrinterNotifyInfo function frees a system-allocated buffer created by the FindNextPrinterChangeNotification function.

Syntax


BOOL FreePrinterNotifyInfo(
  _In_  PPRINTER_NOTIFY_INFO pPrinterNotifyInfo
);

Parameters

pPrinterNotifyInfo [in]

Pointer to a PRINTER_NOTIFY_INFO buffer returned from a call to the FindNextPrinterChangeNotification function. FreePrinterNotifyInfo deallocates this buffer.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is a nonzero value.

If the function fails, the return value is zero.

Remarks

Note  This is a blocking or synchronous function and might not return immediately. How quickly this function returns depends on run-time factors such as network status, print server configuration, and printer driver implementation—factors that are difficult to predict when writing an application. Calling this function from a thread that manages interaction with the user interface could make the application appear to be unresponsive.
