check for print spooler empty

Hi,

How do wait for a print spooler to be empty? My application
sucks up all the CPU cycles after i print some reports. I want to
delay the CPU intensive stuff until after the print spooler finishes.

Thanks,
Mark

According to this:
http://www.codeproject.com/dotnet/EMFSpoolViewer.asp

the printer spool queue is a folder which normally resides at
"$winnt$\System32\spool\"

good luck
