IsBusy Property

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 */
public boolean get_IsBusy ()

public function get IsBusy () : boolean

Not applicable.

Property Value

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.
