Members

pPrinterName

A pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the name of the printer.

pPortName

A pointer to a null-terminated string that identifies the port(s) used to transmit data to the printer. If a printer is connected to more than one port, the names of each port must be separated by commas (for example, "LPT1:,LPT2:,LPT3:").

Value Meaning
PRINTER_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECT Job is sent directly to the printer (it is not spooled).
PRINTER_ATTRIBUTE_DO_COMPLETE_FIRST If set and printer is set for print-while-spooling, any jobs that have completed spooling are scheduled to print before jobs that have not completed spooling.
