What on earth makes you think that you can get the password for a file from the print request data?
Ignoring that the printing application can use text, images, or both to print data (and it will vary from driver to driver and the print properties the user selected what is actually sent) do you really think it is likely that any application will broadcast it's passwords in such a way.

The only reason I can see for this requirement is a (poor) attempt to listen in on requests in the hope that you can get information illicitly.
In this case, you will not find many (if any) people willing to help you here.
