PRINTER_DEFAULTS info  Overview  Group

The PRINTER_DEFAULTS structure specifies the default data type, environment, initialization data, and access rights for a printer.

typedef struct _PRINTER_DEFAULTS {  // pd 

    LPTSTR      pDatatype; 

    LPDEVMODE   pDevMode; 

    ACCESS_MASK DesiredAccess; 




Points to a null-terminated string that specifies the default data type for a printer.
Points to a DEVMODE structure that identifies the default environment and initialization data for a printer.
Specifies desired access rights for a printer. The OpenPrinter function uses this member to set access rights to the printer. These rights can affect the operation of the SetPrinter and DeletePrinter functions.

This member can be set to PRINTER_ACCESS_ADMINISTER, PRINTER_ACCESS_USE, or any generic security value (for example, WRITE_DACL). If an application wishes to open a printer to perform administrative tasks, such as the SetPrinter function, it must open the printer with PRINTER_ACCESS_ADMINISTER access.
