ValidationResult Structure

 

Represents a merged PrintTicket that is guaranteed to be viable, with a report of any settings that were changed to make it viable.

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

[ComVisibleAttribute(false)]
public struct ValidationResult

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyConflictStatus

Gets a value indicating whether a conflict occurred between the functionality supported by the printer and the functionality requested in the initial merger of two source PrintTickets.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyValidatedPrintTicket

Gets a PrintTicket object that results from the merging of two PrintTicket objects, which might have been adjusted to ensure its viability.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified ValidationResult is equal to the current ValidationResult.(Overrides ValueType.Equals(Object).)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Gets the hash code associated with the ValidationResult and its PrintTicket and print stream.(Overrides ValueType.GetHashCode().)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns the fully qualified type name of this instance.(Inherited from ValueType.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_puboperatorSystem_CAPS_staticEquality(ValidationResult, ValidationResult)

Determines if the specified ValidationResult objects are equal.

System_CAPS_puboperatorSystem_CAPS_staticInequality(ValidationResult, ValidationResult)

Determines if the specified ValidationResult objects are not equal.

If the initial PrintTicket asks for printing functionality that the printer does not support, the printer driver resolves all conflicts in order to produce a viable ticket.

The following example shows how to use the values of this type while merging two print tickets.

/// <summary>
/// Changes the user-default PrintTicket setting of the specified print queue.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="queue">the printer whose user-default PrintTicket setting needs to be changed</param>
static private void ChangePrintTicketSetting(PrintQueue queue)
{
    //
    // Obtain the printer's PrintCapabilities so we can determine whether or not
    // duplexing printing is supported by the printer.
    //
    PrintCapabilities printcap = queue.GetPrintCapabilities();

    //
    // The printer's duplexing capability is returned as a read-only collection of duplexing options
    // that can be supported by the printer. If the collection returned contains the duplexing
    // option we want to set, it means the duplexing option we want to set is supported by the printer,
    // so we can make the user-default PrintTicket setting change.
    //
    if (printcap.DuplexingCapability.Contains(Duplexing.TwoSidedLongEdge))
    {
        //
        // To change the user-default PrintTicket, we can first create a delta PrintTicket with
        // the new duplexing setting.
        //
        PrintTicket deltaTicket = new PrintTicket();
        deltaTicket.Duplexing = Duplexing.TwoSidedLongEdge;

        //
        // Then merge the delta PrintTicket onto the printer's current user-default PrintTicket,
        // and validate the merged PrintTicket to get the new PrintTicket we want to set as the
        // printer's new user-default PrintTicket.
        //
        ValidationResult result = queue.MergeAndValidatePrintTicket(queue.UserPrintTicket, deltaTicket);

        //
        // The duplexing option we want to set could be constrained by other PrintTicket settings
        // or device settings. We can check the validated merged PrintTicket to see whether the
        // the validation process has kept the duplexing option we want to set unchanged.
        //
        if (result.ValidatedPrintTicket.Duplexing == Duplexing.TwoSidedLongEdge)
        {
            //
            // Set the printer's user-default PrintTicket and commit the set operation.
            //
            queue.UserPrintTicket = result.ValidatedPrintTicket;
            queue.Commit();
            Console.WriteLine("PrintTicket new duplexing setting is set on '{0}'.", queue.FullName);
        }
        else
        {
            //
            // The duplexing option we want to set has been changed by the validation process
            // when it was resolving setting constraints.
            //
            Console.WriteLine("PrintTicket new duplexing setting is constrained on '{0}'.", queue.FullName);
        }
    }
    else
    {
        //
        // If the printer doesn't support the duplexing option we want to set, skip it.
        //
        Console.WriteLine("PrintTicket new duplexing setting is not supported on '{0}'.", queue.FullName);
    }
