Print Tracking

P: n/a
BW
Has anyone attempted writing a print-tracking application in VB.Net? I'd
like it to run as an active service on the server and monitor all printjobs.

I'd like to write it myself but am not sure where to start. The app will
reside on SBS2003.

Can someone point me in the right direction on how to go about writing this?

Thanks for the start. Notes were in de so I lost some of it in
translation. But according to the code I can use the Win32_Printjob for
print job information. Excuse me but what I don't see is how to make the
service listen for all printjobs, thus calling the code referenced.

Thanks.

use WMI. It is very easy to do. I have posted the code for this in this
group before. Do a search to find it. The only downside is that it can be
a little slow sometimes.
