EnumeratedPrintQueueTypes Enumeration

Specifies attributes of print queues.

This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

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

public enum EnumeratedPrintQueueTypes

Member nameDescription
EnableDevQueryA print queue that holds its print jobs when the document and printer configurations do not match.
PushedMachineConnectionA print queue that was installed by using the Push Printer Connections computer policy. See Remarks.
PushedUserConnectionA print queue that was installed by using the Push Printer Connections user policy. See Remarks.
QueuedA print queue that allows multiple print jobs in the queue.
DirectPrintingA print queue that sends a print job directly to printing instead of spooling the job first.
PublishedInDirectoryServicesA print queue that is visible in the directory of printers.
WorkOfflineA print queue that can work offline.
RawOnlyA print queue that spools only raw data.
EnableBidiA print queue for a printer that has bidirectional communication enabled.
KeepPrintedJobsA print queue that keeps jobs in the queue after printing them.
FaxA print queue that services a fax machine.
TerminalServerA print queue that is installed by the redirection feature in Terminal Services.
ConnectionsA print queue that is connected to the specified print server.
SharedA print queue that is shared.
LocalA print queue that is installed as a local print queue on the specified print server.

Use these values with the GetPrintQueues method to list subsets of available print queues.

PushedMachineConnection and PushedUserConnection refer to policies that enable automated connection of machines and users to printers. See the section "Deploying Printers to Users or Computers by Using Group Policy" in the Step-by-Step Guide for Print Management.

The following example shows how to use the EnumeratedPrintQueueTypes enumeration 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,

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.");
