Check Spooler PrintJob

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Got this command from Scriptomatic

snipped a little to get what I want

$wbemFlagReturnImmediately = 0x10
$wbemFlagForwardOnly = 0x20
$colItems = ""
$strComputer = "localhost"

$Output= ""
$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $strComputer & "\root\CIMV2")
$colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_PrintJob", "WQL", $wbemFlagReturnImmediately + $wbemFlagForwardOnly)

If IsObj($colItems) Then
    For $objItem In $colItems
        $Output = $Output & "Document: " & $objItem.Document & @CRLF
        
        If Msgbox(1,"WMI Output",$Output) = 2 then ExitLoop
        $Output=""
    Next
    
Else
    Msgbox(0,"WMI Output","No WMI Objects Found for class: " & "Win32_PrintJob" )

EndIf

The code works when something's in the spooler

but doesn't display the messagebox when the spooler's empty

My purpose for this code is to :

Display what's inside the spooler if it's not empty

if it's empty, prompt or return me something

Anyone who's familiar with this please help?

:P

im not sure if this can help! but im trying! this is a VB script i found on the net to check printer!

before i send you this code! just to let you know! in windows platforme any version! you got this dir:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS everyfile in there it printing job file waiting for print!

you can check the file to know if a print job is waiting!

FP00001.SHD: is the printingjob definition this file is locked by the print processor

FP00001.SPL: and this is the data to print

if you have no file in there! there is no print job waiting! if there file for each pair of file like this up you have 1 print job!

ok here is the VB code

Public Function CheckPrinter(PrinterStr As String, JobStr As String) As String

wow, that's pretty long

let me take sometime to digest

I'll try to work it out the AutoIt way after the digesting

Thanks!!

i think you should try with the file check in the spooler dir! i will be more easy! and 100% autoit!
