public PrintQueueCollection GetPrintQueues(
	EnumeratedPrintQueueTypes[] enumerationFlag
)

Type: System.Printing.PrintQueueCollection
The PrintQueueCollection of print queues, of the specified types, on the print server.

The following example shows how to use this method to get 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();
