Win32_PrinterController class

The Win32_PrinterController association WMI class relates a printer and the local device to which the printer is connected. Note that this class only returns instances for local printers.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all of the inherited properties. Properties are listed in alphabetic order, not MOF order.

Members

The Win32_PrinterController class has these types of members:

Properties

The Win32_PrinterController class has these properties.

AccessState

Data type: uint16

Access type: Read-only

State of the controller access to the device. This information is necessary when a logical device can be commanded by, or accessed through, multiple controllers.

This property is inherited from CIM_ControlledBy.

Antecedent

Data type: CIM_Controller

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Key

Reference to the CIM_Controller instance representing the local device associated with this printer.

This property is inherited from CIM_Dependency.

Dependent

Data type: Win32_Printer

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Key

Reference to the Win32_Printer instance representing the printer associated with the local device.

This property is inherited from CIM_Dependency.

NegotiatedDataWidth

Data type: uint32

Access type: Read-only

Data width in use between devices (when several bus or connection data widths are possible). Data width is specified in bits. If data width is not negotiated, or if this information is not available or important to device management, the property should be set to 0 (zero).

This property is inherited from CIM_DeviceConnection.

NegotiatedSpeed

Data type: uint64

Access type: Read-only

Speed in use between devices (when several bus or connection speeds are possible). Speed is specified in bits per second. If connection or bus speeds are not negotiated, or if this information is not available or important to device management, the property should be set to 0 (zero).

This property is inherited from CIM_DeviceConnection.

For more information about using uint64 values in scripts, see Scripting in WMI.

NumberOfHardResets

Data type: uint32

Access type: Read-only

Number of hard resets issued by the controller.

This property is inherited from CIM_ControlledBy.

NumberOfSoftResets

Data type: uint32

Access type: Read-only

Number of soft resets issued by the controller.

This property is inherited from CIM_ControlledBy.

Remarks

The Win32_PrinterController class is derived from CIM_ControlledBy.
