PrintSystemObject Class

Defines basic properties and methods that are common to the objects of the printing system. Classes that derive from this class represent such objects as print queues, print servers, and print jobs.

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

public abstract class PrintSystemObject : IDisposable

In addition to being the base class for print system objects, this class can be useful for calling methods when your application does not know or does not care what particular type of print system object it is using. For example, you could enumerate through a PrintSystemObjects collection of different object types, calling the Commit method on each of them in turn.

Notes to Inheritors:

If you derive a class from PrintSystemObject, you may want to derive a collection of objects of that class from PrintSystemObjects.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
