The EndDocPrinter function ends a print job for the specified printer.
- hPrinter [in]
If the function succeeds, the return value is a nonzero value.
If the function fails, the return value is zero.
The EndDocPrinter function returns an error if the print job was not started by calling the StartDocPrinter function.
The sequence for a print job is as follows:
- To begin a print job, call StartDocPrinter.
- To begin each page, call StartPagePrinter.
- To write data to a page, call WritePrinter.
- To end each page, call EndPagePrinter.
- Repeat 2, 3, and 4 for as many pages as necessary.
- To end the print job, call EndDocPrinter.
When a page in a spooled file exceeds approximately 350 MB, it may fail to print and not send an error message. For example, this can occur when printing large EMF files. The page size limit depends on many factors including the amount of virtual memory available, the amount of memory allocated by calling processes, and the amount of fragmentation in the process heap.
