    Return Value

    A member of the GdPictureStatus enumeration. If the method has been successfully followed, then the return value is GdPictureStatus.OK.

    We strongly recommend always checking this status first.

    It is recommend to use the GetStat method or the PrintGetStat method to identify the specific reason for the method's failure, if any.

    Just to remind you that the active printer is the printer identified by the PrintGetActivePrinter method or set by the PrintSetActivePrinter method and it is dedicated to executing all subsequent print jobs using this class as well as utilizing all by you altered printer settings.
