PrintGetColorMode Method (GdViewer)
Example 





GdPicture14.WPF Namespace > GdViewer Class : PrintGetColorMode Method
Returns the printer color mode setting of the active printer. This property determines whether the output will print in color or in monochrome.
Syntax
'Declaration
 
Public Function PrintGetColorMode() As PrinterColorMode
public PrinterColorMode PrintGetColorMode()
public function PrintGetColorMode(): PrinterColorMode; 
public function PrintGetColorMode() : PrinterColorMode;
public: PrinterColorMode PrintGetColorMode(); 
public:
PrinterColorMode PrintGetColorMode(); 

Return Value

A member of the PrinterColorMode enumeration. The value of the active printer color mode setting.

Please always use the GetStat method or the PrintGetStat method to determine if this method has been successful.

Remarks
We strongly recommend using the GetStat method or the PrintGetStat method to identify the specific reason for the method's failure.

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.
