RemoteData Property


Gets the remote data related to the current printed job.

public PrintJobData RemoteData { get; } 
Public ReadOnly Property RemoteData As PrintJobData 
property PrintJobData^ RemoteData { 
   PrintJobData^ get(); 

Property Value

The remote data wrapper class.


When printing a job from a remote machine, the data will be recieved in the server machine.

This property will return the data related to the current printe job.

This parameter will be available between JobStart and JobEnd for a given job.

This data has been sent from the client machine in the Leadtools.Printer.Client.IVirtualPrinterClient.PrintJob(Leadtools.Printer.Client.PrintJobData) method.
