Examples

The following example shows how to use the values of this type while merging two print tickets.

    // that can be supported by the printer. If the collection returned contains the duplexing

Remarks

If the initial PrintTicket asks for printing functionality that the printer does not support, the printer driver resolves all conflicts in order to produce a viable ticket.

Properties

ConflictStatus

Gets a value indicating whether a conflict occurred between the functionality supported by the printer and the functionality requested in the initial merger of two source PrintTickets.

ValidatedPrintTicket

Gets a PrintTicket object that results from the merging of two PrintTicket objects, which might have been adjusted to ensure its viability.

Methods

Equals(Object)

Determines whether the specified ValidationResult is equal to the current ValidationResult.

GetHashCode()

Gets the hash code associated with the ValidationResult and its PrintTicket and print stream.

Operators

Equality(ValidationResult, ValidationResult)

Determines if the specified ValidationResult objects are equal.

Inequality(ValidationResult, ValidationResult)

Determines if the specified ValidationResult objects are not equal.
