LocalPrintServer Class

Represents the local print server (the computer on which your application is running) and enables management of its print queues. This class cannot be inherited.

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

public sealed class LocalPrintServer : PrintServer
public final class LocalPrintServer extends PrintServer
public final class LocalPrintServer extends PrintServer
Not applicable.

When your application writes a value to a property of the LocalPrintServer object, that change has no effect until the value is passed to the computer that is represented by the LocalPrintServer object. To ensure that the change in value takes effect, use the Commit method.

In addition, other applications may also change the print service properties of the computer. To ensure that the LocalPrintServer object used by your application has the latest actual values, use the Refresh method.

The following example shows how to create an instance of the LocalPrintServer class.

// -------------------- GetPrintXpsDocumentWriter() -------------------
/// <summary>
///   Returns an XpsDocumentWriter for the default print queue.</summary>
/// <returns>
///   An XpsDocumentWriter for the default print queue.</returns>
private XpsDocumentWriter GetPrintXpsDocumentWriter()
    // Create a local print server
    LocalPrintServer ps = new LocalPrintServer();

    // Get the default print queue
    PrintQueue pq = ps.DefaultPrintQueue;

    // Get an XpsDocumentWriter for the default print queue
    XpsDocumentWriter xpsdw = PrintQueue.CreateXpsDocumentWriter(pq);
    return xpsdw;
}// end:GetPrintXpsDocumentWriter()
