function GetPrinterTasks(PrinterName: string): Integer;
var
  AHandle: THandle;
  NumJobs, DataSize: Cardinal;
begin
  Result := 0;
  if PrinterName <> '' then
  try
    if OpenPrinter(PChar(PrinterName), AHandle, nil) then
    try
      EnumJobs(AHandle, 0, 5000, 2, nil, 0, DataSize, NumJobs);
      if (NumJobs = 0) and (DataSize <> 0) then
        NumJobs := DataSize div 1048
    finally
      ClosePrinter(AHandle);
    end;
    Result := NumJobs;
