    'Declaration
     
    
    Public Function PrintSetCopies( _
       ByVal Copies As Short _
    ) As GdPictureStatus
    public GdPictureStatus PrintSetCopies( 
       short Copies
    )
    public function PrintSetCopies( 
        Copies: Int16
    ): GdPictureStatus; 
    public function PrintSetCopies( 
       Copies : short
    ) : GdPictureStatus;
    public: GdPictureStatus PrintSetCopies( 
       short Copies
    ) 
    public:
    GdPictureStatus PrintSetCopies( 
       short Copies
    ) 

    Parameters

    Copies
    The number of copies to be printed. The new value of the active printer copies setting.

    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.

    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.
