ConnectToPrinterDlg The ConnectToPrinterDlg function displays a dialog box that lets users browse and connect to printers on a network. If the user selects a printer, the function attempts to create a connection to it; if a suitable driver is not installed on the server, the user is given the option of creating a printer locally.
DeletePort Displays a dialog box that allows the user to delete a port name.
DeviceCapabilities The DeviceCapabilities function retrieves the capabilities of a printer device driver.
DocumentProperties The DocumentProperties function retrieves or modifies printer initialization information or displays a printer-configuration property sheet for the specified printer.
EndDoc The EndDoc function ends a print job.
EndPage The EndPage function notifies the device that the application has finished writing to a page. This function is typically used to direct the device driver to advance to a new page.

FindClosePrinterChangeNotification Closes a change notification object created by calling the FindFirstPrinterChangeNotification function.
FindFirstPrinterChangeNotification Creates a change notification object and returns a handle to the object. You can then use this handle in a call to one of the wait functions to monitor changes to the printer or print server.
FindNextPrinterChangeNotification Retrieves information about the most recent change notification for a change notification object associated with a printer or print server. Call this function when a wait operation on the change notification object is satisfied.

Can anyone help me. What I'm trying to do is write a program that gives a quota to every user on the network. 100 pages per month or something. I want to know what happens when you click print. It goes to the print server and is the print spooler always on? How does it know when a print job is sent? Can I stop all print requests to go to the spooler before enering my program. How can I know how many pages have been printed? Any help on how I can inegrate my program with the windows print spooler will be appreciated. Please I need help asap. Please email it to if you have anything. Thanks.

As far as I know, there is no easy way to check for the status of a printer like paper out, online, printer error, etc. with the Windows API. I did a lot of searching on this subject but no luck so far. Please let me know if anyone finds an 'elegant' solution.
