How can I get information about the print jobs that are currently being printed?
Which printers are currently active, the current page number and total pages.

Best regards

I'm afraid that information is not given by Xailer. I guess, that information maybe given by the printer spooler which has its own API. I'm sorry I can not offer you better help.

Hi Ignacio,

I found this code in the google group comp.lang.xharbour:

Code: Select all

#include ""
#include ""

IMPORT OpenPrinter( par1, par2, par3 ) FROM winspool.drv
IMPORT StartDocPrinter( par1, par2, par3 ) FROM winspool.drv
IMPORT WritePrinter( par1, par2, par3, par4 ) FROM winspool.drv
IMPORT EndDocPrinter( par1 ) FROM winspool.drv
IMPORT ClosePrinter( par1 ) FROM winspool.drv
IMPORT GetJob( par1, par2, par3, par4, par5, par6 ) FROM winspool.drv

   C structure DOC_INFO_1 align 4
      member pDocName    is CTYPE_CHAR_PTR
      member pOutputFile is CTYPE_CHAR_PTR
      member pDataType   is CTYPE_CHAR_PTR
   end C structure

   C structure JOB_INFO_1
      member JobId        is CTYPE_UNSIGNED_LONG
      member pPrinterName is CTYPE_CHAR_PTR
      member pMachineName is CTYPE_CHAR_PTR
      member pUserName    is CTYPE_CHAR_PTR
      member pDocument    is CTYPE_CHAR_PTR
      member pDatatype    is CTYPE_CHAR_PTR
      member pStatus      is CTYPE_CHAR_PTR
      member Status       is CTYPE_UNSIGNED_LONG
      member Priority     is CTYPE_UNSIGNED_LONG
      member Position     is CTYPE_UNSIGNED_LONG
      member TotalPages   is CTYPE_UNSIGNED_LONG
      member PagesPrinted is CTYPE_UNSIGNED_LONG
      member Submitted    is CTYPE_VOID_PTR
   end C structure

Unfortunately this only works with xHarbour.
Do you have a hint for me, how I can port the code to Harbour?

Best regards
