PrintQueue.IsBusy Property


Gets a value that indicates whether the printing device is busy.

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

public bool IsBusy { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the device is busy; otherwise, false.

Busy does not necessarily mean that it is processing a print job. If the device is a combination printer/fax/copier, then it might be faxing or copying. Compare with the IsProcessing property.

If the device does not support a signal with this meaning, then the property is always false.
