Manages the print queues on a print server, which is usually a computer, but can be a dedicated hardware print server appliance.

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

public class PrintServer : PrintSystemObject
public class PrintServer extends PrintSystemObject
public class PrintServer extends PrintSystemObject
Not applicable.

When your program writes a value to a property of PrintServer, that change has no effect until it is passed on to the computer that is represented by the PrintServer object. To commit changes, use the Commit method for the object.

Similarly, other applications may change the actual print service properties of the computer. To make sure that the PrintServer object for your program has the latest values, use the Refresh method for the object.

The following example shows how to create an instance of PrintServer.

// Create a PrintServer
// "theServer" must be a print server to which the user has full print access.
PrintServer myPrintServer = new PrintServer(@"\\theServer");

// List the print server's queues
PrintQueueCollection myPrintQueues = myPrintServer.GetPrintQueues();
String printQueueNames = "My Print Queues:\n\n";
foreach (PrintQueue pq in myPrintQueues)
    printQueueNames += "\t" + pq.Name + "\n";
Console.WriteLine("\nPress Return to continue.");
