AbortProc info  Overview  Group

The AbortProc function is an application-defined callback function that is called when a print job is to be canceled during spooling.


    HDC hdc,

// handle to device context

    int iError 

// error value



Identifies the device context for the print job.
Specifies whether an error has occurred. This parameter is zero if no error has occurred; it is SP_OUTOFDISK if Windows Print Manager is currently out of disk space and more disk space will become available if the application waits.

Return Values

The callback function should return TRUE to continue the print job or FALSE to cancel the print job.


An application installs this callback function by calling the SetAbortProc function. The AbortProc function is a placeholder for the application-defined function name.

If the iError parameter is SP_OUTOFDISK, the application need not cancel the print job. If it does not cancel the job, it must yield to Print Manager by calling the PeekMessage or GetMessage function.
