    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.
