Parameters

printTicket

A print ticket that provides the basis on which the print capabilities will be reported. See Remarks.

Return Value

A PrintCapabilities object that specifies what the printer can and cannot do, such as two-sided coping or automatic stapling.

Exception typeCondition

PrintQueueException

The PrintCapabilities object could not be retrieved.

ArgumentException

printTicket is not well-formed.

The PrintTicket parameter is used as the basis on which to construct the PrintCapabilities object. For example, suppose the printer supported only media types A and B from input bin 1 and it only supported media type C from input bin 2. If the printTicket parameter specified input bin 1, then the PrintCapabilities object that is returned would include all three media types, but it would report type C as "constrained." If the printTicket parameter specified input bin 2, then the PrintCapabilities object that is returned would include all three media types, but it would report types A and B as "constrained." See the Print Schema for more information on constraints.

If printTicket is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the UserPrintTicket will be used.
