AddJob info  Overview  Group

The AddJob function obtains a path string that specifies a file that you can use to store a spooled print job.

BOOL AddJob(

    HANDLE hPrinter,

// specifies printer for the print job

    DWORD Level,

// specifies version of print job information data structure

    LPBYTE pData,

// pointer to buffer to receive print job information data

    DWORD cbBuf,

// specifies size of buffer pointed to by pData 

    LPDWORD pcbNeeded 

// pointer to variable to receive size of print job information data



Handle that specifies the printer for the print job. This must be a local printer that is configured as a spooled printer. If hPrinter is a handle to a remote printer connection, or if the printer is configured for direct printing, the AddJob function fails.
Specifies the version of the print job information data structure that the function stores into the buffer pointed to by pData. Set this parameter to one.
Pointer to a buffer to receive an ADDJOB_INFO_1 data structure and a path string.
Specifies the size, in bytes, of the buffer pointed to by pData. The buffer needs to be large enough to contain an ADDJOB_INFO_1 structure and a path string.
Pointer to a variable to receive the total size, in bytes, of the ADDJOB_INFO_1 data structure plus the path string. If this value is less than or equal to cbBuf and the function succeeds, this is the actual number of bytes written to the buffer pointed to by pData. If this number is greater than cbBuf, the buffer is too small, and you must call the function again with a buffer size at least as large as *pcbNeeded.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.


You can call the CreateFile function to open the spool file specified by the Path member of the ADDJOB_INFO_1 structure, and then call the WriteFile function to write print job data to it. Once that is done, call ScheduleJob to notify the print spooler that the print job can now be scheduled by the spooler for printing.
