Easy one: how can I list printers ??

I have a software that prints lots of documents.  I want to let the user configure some documents to get printed at a specific printer while others get printed elsewhere.

I want to let the user choose printers for jobs in a configuration panel I'm about to design.  So here is my question again:  how do I list ALL printers ?

Thanks!

try this

uses ..........,Pritners;

procedure TForm1.FormButton1Click(Sender: TObject);
VAR
  pcbNeeded  : DWORD;
  PcReturned : DWORD;
  Buffer     : Array[1..255] OF TPrinterInfo1;
  cnt        : Integer;
begin
  TreeView1.Items.Clear;

  EnumPrinters(
    PRINTER_ENUM_LOCAL,              // enumerates the locally installed printers
    '',
    1,                               // Use the PRINTER_INFO_1 Stucture
    @Buffer,
    SizeOf(Buffer),
    pcbNeeded,
    pcreturned
  );

  // Add the Printers to your listbox

  For Cnt := 1 to pcReturned DO
   listbox1.Items.Add ( NIL, Buffer[cnt].PName);

end;

Best Regards
