    Hello,

    No, once the print job starts you cannot interrupt the job in our SDK, you would only be able to use Windows API's to stop the PrintServer from printing if that's possible. Googling for the process to do so would be a good start to see if it's possible to cancel a job in Windows.

    Same for Previewing or Exporting. You could spawn a thread for each and kill the thread is the only way to stop the progress.

    As for the Progress indicator P2P should show it, for the POC I had an enhancement request done and it should be available in SP 21 due out in August.

    Don
