I'm using C# for my codes.
I'd like to ask for some help guys!

How can i check printer status using C# codes.  i have a code but it will not work yet.  Though its printer status seen inside printers window changes (Out of paper, not connected, etc.) my code only returns one value only, and that is "3".

Can anyone give me sample codes for this?

Thanks a lot.
