Read-PrinterNfcTag

Reads information about printers from an NFC tag.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Read0
Read-PrinterNfcTag [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Read-PrinterNfcTag cmdlet reads information about printers from the near field communication (NFC) tag that anyone taps against the default NFC reader for the system. The cmdlet returns the printer information that it reads as a table that contains the value of the SharePath property and the value and the wsdAddress property for the printers.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-CimSession<CimSession[]>

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Examples

Example 1: Read an NFC tag

This first command reads printer connection data from the next NFC tag that someone taps against the NFC reader. The command stores the printer information in the $Tag variable.

The second command uses the Write-PrinterNfcTag to write the printer connection information stored in $Tag to an NFC tag.


PS C:\> $Tag = Read-PrinterNfcTag
PS C:\> Write-PrinterNfcTag $Tag

Example 2: Modify the share path of a printer connection

This first command reads printer connection information from the next NFC tag that someone taps against the NFC reader. The command stores the printer information in the $Tag variable.

The second command changes the share path of the shared printers stored in $Tag. The command uses standard dot syntax to access the SharePaths property of the object stored in $Tag.


PS C:\> $Tag = Read-PrinterNfcTag
PS C:\> $Tag.SharePaths = "\\ntprint\b27-3697-b"
