Hi!
Does any of you can help me how to find printer connected to PC (for example 1 connected via USB, and one via LAN), and then print something using selected printer?
I need to create a configuration, so user will choose printer (for example her ip adress which ill save in database), so next time anything will be printed using this printer.

Thanks for any help!

Normally, you don't need to get the list of connected printers directly. The user gets them in the print dialog. In WPF, this can be the class System.Windows.Controls.PrintDialog:

The whole topic of WPF printing is relatively big topic. There is comprehensive MSDN documentation and number of articles. Just look:

Good luck,
