Query printer driver

Is it possible to query the printer driver for a status report druing long print jobs? I.E. # of pages printed, percent of current job?  If so, how?

I found this...Perhaps someone else could give an example...

Declare Function GetQueuedCompletionStatus Lib "kernel32" Alias "GetQueuedCompletionStatus" (ByVal CompletionPort As Long, lpNumberOfBytesTransferred As Long, lpCompletionKey As Long, lpOverlapped As Long, ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long) As Boolean

Yes, the Win32 API includes a GetJob function (usable from VB) that will return info on a job including these items and more:
   Total Pages
   Pages Printed
   Position
   Job Status
   Time Submitted
   User Name

However, if you've never worked with the API via VB you might need some help working this out.  If you accept this answer, I'd be willing to forward the necessary declarations and work with you on the code.

If you reject this answer, I'll assume you are not interested.
