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

public virtual string Location { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The printer's physical location.

The following example shows how to use this property to list a subset of available print queues.

// Specify that the list will contain only the print queues that are installed as local and are shared
EnumeratedPrintQueueTypes[] enumerationFlags = {EnumeratedPrintQueueTypes.Local,
                                                EnumeratedPrintQueueTypes.Shared};

LocalPrintServer printServer = new LocalPrintServer();

//Use the enumerationFlags to filter out unwanted print queues
PrintQueueCollection printQueuesOnLocalServer = printServer.GetPrintQueues(enumerationFlags);

Console.WriteLine("These are your shared, local print queues:\n\n");

foreach (PrintQueue printer in printQueuesOnLocalServer)
{
    Console.WriteLine("\tThe shared printer " + printer.Name + " is located at " + printer.Location + "\n");
}
Console.WriteLine("Press enter to continue.");
Console.ReadLine();
