EndDoc function (wingdi.h)

The EndDoc function ends a print job.


int EndDoc(
  [in] HDC hdc


[in] hdc

Handle to the device context for the print job.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is greater than zero.

If the function fails, the return value is less than or equal to zero.


Note  This is a blocking or synchronous function and might not return immediately. How quickly this function returns depends on run-time factors such as network status, print server configuration, and printer driver implementation—factors that are difficult to predict when writing an application. Calling this function from a thread that manages interaction with the user interface could make the application appear to be unresponsive.
Applications should call EndDoc immediately after finishing a print job.


For a sample program that uses this function, see How To: Print Using the GDI Print API.
