PrintQueue Constructor (PrintServer, String, PrintQueueIndexedProperty[], PrintSystemDesiredAccess)

Initializes a new instance of PrintQueue class with the specified PrintServer, queue name, array of PrintQueueIndexedProperty values to initialize, and desired access.

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

public PrintQueue(
	PrintServer printServer,
	string printQueueName,
	PrintQueueIndexedProperty[] propertyFilter,
	PrintSystemDesiredAccess desiredAccess


Type: System.Printing.PrintServer
The print server that hosts the print queue.
Type: System.String
The name of the print queue.
Type: System.Printing.PrintQueueIndexedProperty[]
An array of PrintQueueIndexedProperty values that specifies the properties to initialize.
Type: System.Printing.PrintSystemDesiredAccess
One of the PrintSystemDesiredAccess values that specifies the type of access to the print queue that your program needs.


desiredAccess is a value that can be applied only to a PrintServer object, not a PrintQueue object. For example, AdministrateServer.

The use of a constructor with the propertyFilter parameter improves performance.
