Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

Thats absolutely brilliant, do you know any other stuff, say how the status icon works, e.g it says


Status = Ready

Location = Lpt1


Or anything like that, if you do that would be great

Thanks so much

Have a look at the System.Drawing.Printing namespace:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/cpref/html/frlrfsystemdrawingprinting.asp

You can fins dome stuff there, like PrintController, PrinterSettings, etc. I don't know where all the stuff resides but I think you can find a lot of things for the printer here.
