BOOL GetForm(

    HANDLE hPrinter,

Specifies the version of the structure to which pForm points. This value must be 1.
Points to an array of bytes that receives the initialized FORM_INFO_1 structure.
Specifies the size, in bytes, of the pForm array.
Points to a value that specifies the number of bytes copied if the function succeeds or the number of bytes required if cbBuf is too small.
