EnumPrinterConnections Method

 

Returns the current network printer mapping information.

objPrinters = object.EnumPrinterConnections 

object

WshNetwork object.

objPrinters

Variable that holds the network printer mapping information.

The EnumPrinterConnections method returns a collection. This collection is an array that associates pairs of items — network printer local names and their associated UNC names. Even-numbered items in the collection represent printer ports. Odd-numbered items represent the networked printer UNC names. The first item in the collection is at index zero (0).

Legacy Code Example

The following example uses the EnumPrinterConnections method to generate a list of networked printers and displays this mapping information.

<package>
   <job id="vbs">
      <script language="VBScript">
         Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
         Set oDrives = WshNetwork.EnumNetworkDrives
         Set oPrinters = WshNetwork.EnumPrinterConnections
         WScript.Echo "Network drive mappings:"
         For i = 0 to oDrives.Count - 1 Step 2
            WScript.Echo "Drive " & oDrives.Item(i) & " = " & oDrives.Item(i+1)
         Next
