PrinterQueueWatch.NET - Featurelist

Nov 14, 2006 at 8:38 PM
I'd like to extend the component with several new features:

One I've did is the possibility to control printer settings, such as "keep printed documents", "hold mismatched documents", ...

but there is much more I think:

- install, uninstall local and network printers
- CRUD printer sharing
- CRUD security settings
- Set Location, Comment -> Implement PRINTER_INFO1..9

Better -> Implementation of the whole Printer API including changes of Windows Vista

- Parse Printjobs, extract true values
- (Save Job as PDF) with idea: store in a document management system

If you have other ideas, so tell it.

Thanks solidcrip

Security settings especially would be very useful...e.g. the ability to add/remove user access to a printer at run time.

Hi, Is there any way to know what are fixes/enhancements made for each build

I've work with PumaPrinterMonitor Service, it can catch Print Events such as Pause, Cancel,Printing...,
is there any functions that stop, pause or start a print thread? if it coud, can u tell me how to do.

(1) There are no release docs per se for each release but if you look at the work items closed you could work out what fixes/enhancements are in each build

(2) The underlying PrintQueueWatch component supports cancelling and pausing but these are not implemented in the printer monitoring service - but if you have an idea of how this would fit in I'd love to hear it...?

The PrintQueueWatch component has been moved top its own CodePlex project : to facilitate these extra functionality thoughts and also to have better API documentation on the component
