    How I can detect a waiting printer job? - make a web-request on print


    Hello,

    I have a (private - not office) network printer.

    When I print (and the printer is offline) Windows tell me in notification: Printer is offline

    So I have to stand up. Walk to printer. And wait up to 3 minutes, until it's printing.


    Now my idea:

    I use a Sonoff-Wifi-Plug.
    I create with ifttt.com a WebHook for it ... so I just have to request a cryptic URI.


    Now the question. Have someone a idea how the message about offline printer start a script to make this request?

    To answer only that question, there usually will be a printer icon appear in the Notification Area when a print job has been sent to a printer. Opening that will list the job or maybe more than one. An issue exists with print spooling and printing is that if one job has a problem and does not complete many times adding more jobs will stall or fail, usually have to cancel that first one to get the others to work or maybe cancel all to start over.
