 property bool IsPrinterTargetEnabled { bool get(); void set(bool value); };

Public Property IsPrinterTargetEnabled As Boolean

Property Value



True if the PrintTask supports printer targets.


This property works together with Is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled to determine which devices are enumerated when the user extends the print charm. When IsPrinterTargetEnabled is true, the print charm displays conventional printing devices, like 2D printers. When Is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled is true, the print charm displays 3D devices like 3D printers. When both IsPrinterTargetEnabled and Is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled are true, the print charm displays both 2D printers and 3D printers.

By default, IsPrinterTargetEnabled is true and Is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled is false.

UWP apps that support 2D printing in Windows 8 are not required to make a change in Windows 8.1 to add this property.
