Remarks

The following JavaScript code snippet retrieves the PrinterExtensionContext using a DeviceInformation ID, and then uses the context to create a helper object:

// This function runs when the user taps the Back button
function getInkStatus(deviceInformationId) {
    var responseString;
    try {
        var context = Windows.Devices.Printers.Extensions.
            PrintExtensionContext.fromDeviceId(deviceInformationId);
        var helper = new Microsoft.Samples.Printing.WwaDca.
            PrintHelperClass(context);
        var responseString = helper.getInkLevel(1);
    } catch (e) {
        responseString = "deviceInformationId: " + deviceInformationId + 
            " Message: " + e.message;
    }
    return responseString
}
