network print queue intercep


i wanted to know how can we read and intercep printing job queue in our
system which will be forward to a print server?

assume there is a network of computer. 10 pc.
1 of the pc.. is setup with a printer. and the printer is share among all pc
in the network.

let say other pc in the network wanted to print some document. example like
word document. the print job will be send to the host with the printer
(print server).

is there anyway or method i can access or intercep the print job at the pc
and count the pages of printing job and prompt the user for comfirmation
before it is send to the print server to be printed out? And also be able to
cancel or delete the print job.

i wanted to do a print queue manager that can be run on a network.

Hope some one can really help me on this

Hi All, Is this possible: 1) An application prints to a printer/print queue (mainly XP). 2) A vb.net application monitors the print queue (I know this can be done) 3) Retrieve the RAW information from the PrintJob (Cant seem to find anything on this) 4) Delete the Job when I have the RAW information (I know this can be done)
