I need to get an enumeration of the Bin Type Numbers and PaperSize Numbers for a selected printer. I have the printer's Device Name and its Port. I have managed to get the Text Listings for the Items above using the DC_BINNAMES and DC_PAPERNAMES. My problem is I cannot get the API to work using the DC_BINS and DC_PAPERS settings.

PS For PaperSize code is the same, just change

Private Const DC_BINS = 6
Private Const DC_BINNAMES = 12

to

Private Const DC_PAPERSIZE = 3
Private Const DC_PAPERNAMES = 16
