PrintBooleanProperty Class

Represents a Boolean property (and its value) of a printing system hardware or software component.


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

public sealed class PrintBooleanProperty : PrintProperty

The PrintBooleanProperty type exposes the following members.

Public methodPrintBooleanProperty(String)Initializes a new instance of the PrintBooleanProperty class for the specified attribute.
Public methodPrintBooleanProperty(String, Object)Initializes a new instance of the PrintBooleanProperty class for the specified property that is using the specified value.

Protected propertyIsInitializedGets or sets a value that indicates whether the object has been initialized. (Inherited from PrintProperty.)
Public propertyNameWhen overridden in a derived class, gets the name of the property that the object represents. (Inherited from PrintProperty.)
Public propertyValueGets or sets the value of the property that the PrintBooleanProperty represents. (Overrides PrintProperty.Value.)

Public methodDispose()Releases all resources that are being used by the PrintProperty. (Inherited from PrintProperty.)
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodOnDeserializationWhen overridden in a derived class, implements the ISerializable interface and raises the deserialization event when the deserialization is complete. (Inherited from PrintProperty.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Public operatorStatic memberImplicit(PrintBooleanProperty to Boolean)Provides implicit conversion from a PrintBooleanProperty to a Boolean.
Public operatorStatic memberImplicit(PrintBooleanProperty to Boolean)Provides implicit conversion to a Boolean from a pointer to a PrintBooleanProperty.

The following example shows how to use this class while installing a second printer whose properties differ from an existing printer only in location, port, and shared status.

LocalPrintServer myLocalPrintServer = new LocalPrintServer(PrintSystemDesiredAccess.AdministrateServer);
PrintQueue sourcePrintQueue = myLocalPrintServer.DefaultPrintQueue;
PrintPropertyDictionary myPrintProperties = sourcePrintQueue.PropertiesCollection;

// Share the new printer using Remove/Add methods
PrintBooleanProperty shared = new PrintBooleanProperty("IsShared", true);
myPrintProperties.Add("IsShared", shared);

// Give the new printer its share name using SetProperty method
PrintStringProperty theShareName = new PrintStringProperty("ShareName", "\"Son of " + sourcePrintQueue.Name +"\"");
myPrintProperties.SetProperty("ShareName", theShareName);

// Specify the physical location of the new printer using Remove/Add methods
PrintStringProperty theLocation = new PrintStringProperty("Location", "the supply room");
myPrintProperties.Add("Location", theLocation);

// Specify the port for the new printer
String[] port = new String[] { "COM1:" };

// Install the new printer on the local print server
PrintQueue clonedPrinter = myLocalPrintServer.InstallPrintQueue("My clone of " + sourcePrintQueue.Name, "Xerox WCP 35 PS", port, "WinPrint", myPrintProperties);

// Report outcome
Console.WriteLine("{0} in {1} has been installed and shared as {2}", clonedPrinter.Name, clonedPrinter.Location, clonedPrinter.ShareName);
Console.WriteLine("Press Return to continue ...");
