Check for spooling of printer

Hi,

I have a module which converts a crystal report to a PDF file using PDF995 as printer. After that the module proceed to do some other processing on this PDF file. The problem occurs while the module starts to do some other processing while the PDF is still spooling and its not generated yet. Is there a way to check the spooling to PDF995 printer? whether it is finished or not so that the module will only proceed after spooling is completed?

If it acts as a printer, regular Printer API may apply but I'm not sure.

Some articles to look over..
