Print Ticket Processing in the Print Driver

The validated settings in a PrintTicket object are used to configure the print processing that the XPSDrv print driver performs. The components of the print driver, therefore, must read and interpret the settings in the Print Tickets before the driver performs any processing so the driver can process the document according to these settings.

XPSDrv print drivers perform this processing in the print processing filters of the print driver.

GDI-based print drivers continue to use the DEVMODEW structure for the settings because of the compatibility support that is built into the Windows Vista print subsystem. For more information about this support, see Print Ticket Compatibility with Win 32 Applications.
