Printer.DeviceName Property

Gets the name of the current printer.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Printing.Compatibility.VB6
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs.dll)

public string DeviceName { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
Returns a String.

The DeviceName property returns the same value as the PrinterName property of the PrinterSettings class.

NoteNote

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 2010. 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 use the DeviceName property.

Dim Printer As New Printer
MsgBox(Printer.DeviceName)
