PrintQueue.IsBusy Property


Gets a value that indicates whether the printing device is busy.

 property bool IsBusy { bool get(); };
public bool IsBusy { get; }
member this.IsBusy : bool
Public ReadOnly Property IsBusy As Boolean

Property Value

true if the device is busy; otherwise, false.


Busy does not necessarily mean that it is processing a print job. If the device is a combination printer/fax/copier, then it might be faxing or copying. Compare with the IsProcessing property.

If the device does not support a signal with this meaning, then the property is always false.
