I have a printer driver which broadcasts messages to all applications when it is printing.

I have tried everything to capture these message events but it is not working.

I've look through the Win32 documentation but cannot find a WM value with is associated with the print command.

Is there a WM value for printing?

The WM_SPOOLERSTATUS message is sent from Windows Print Manager whenever a job is added to or removed from the Print Manager queue.

fwJobStatus = wParam;       // job-status flag
cJobsLeft = LOWORD(lParam); // number of jobs remaining



Value of wParam. Specifies the PR_JOBSTATUS flag.


Value of the low-order word of lParam. Specifies the number of jobs remaining in the Print Manager queue.

wbr, mo.
