How can I tell if a print job was successfuly printed?

(No speculations please, I need something known to work with all printers).

The spooler API failed me so far, but maybe I'm missing something.

GetJob(..Jobid...)
If Status==JOB_STATUS_PRINTED then the job is printed.

If Status==JOB_STATUS_DELETING or if
GetJob() returns an error value (job not found), then the job is either successfully printed and then automatically deleted, or deleted by the operator on any stage, there is no way to determine whether the job was successfully printed or not.

I never get the JOB_STATUS_PRINTED.
Besides, after the job is deleted the structure containing the job info looks somewhat curropt.
Any ideas?

The time when job is in JOB_STATUS_PRINTED state may be (usually) no more than several tenths of second. Because it is deleted immediately when it is printed.

Job structure is invalid once the job is deleted.

When you set 'Keep job after it has been printed' flag for a printer, you'll see all your jobs inJOB_STATUS_PRINTED state.
