to which printer belongs the context menu?


i'm trying to write a shell extension for printers in c#. i use the
IContextMenu and IShellExtInit interfaces to insert the menu item in the
context menu - it works fine. my problem is to find out to which printer the
context menu belongs.


i have three printers installed on my system.

1. name: hp 5p port: lpt1
2. name: hp 1160 port: usb001
3. name: local hostprinter port: lpt1

when i click on the 'hp 1160' printer and then on my context menu item the
port of 'local hostprinter' has change to 'usb001'. to do this so i need to
know the name of the printer... how can i do it?
