The main issue here, whether the ZPL printer is on/off, the status always shows as "Ready", there is no change in the status.made use off couple codes which i googled, but none have turned out to show me the printer status.
Is there any other way to indentify the status of the ZPL printer/ any other alternative [url]...

I have searched all over and can not find the printqueue anywhere. I'm using VS 2008 Pro, and .NET 3.5. I'm writting in Visual Basic.I create my document then send it to a previous selected printer. I do not give the user a printdialog I handle all the settings in the code. My problem is when the printer is not online, it triggers an unhandled exception. I would like to check the status of the printer just before the printdoc is sent, so that I can handle what to do when the printer is offline.
The problem seen to appear again in printing job...I have a printer(Epson TM-T88IV Receipt)Before printing, i would like to check if printer is available for printing or not (connect or not). if not, i will show the print preview form. otherwise it will print automatically
I am using VB 2008 & Access Databases for creating WinForm Applications. Also i am using Crystal Reports for Report solution. my question is How do i created reports such a way that they can be printed in faster Ascii Format on any DotMatrix printer. The default true type fonts make printing very slower.
I tried to use "Draft 10 cpi" font which come to available me after i installed a correct driver for my Epson printer. which also helped me overcome this problem. however it wont be the scenario with all my clients i.e. they might have different printers having different Make with different drivers installed. i have tried to open such project on there PC but the printing wont come in Draft instead the fonts get expanded too much & the print wont come right.
I am engaged in a project to alert Paper out status of printer in screen on top of all other windows. I am new to VB programming... I tried the codes given in Microsoft Support. But it gives many errors as I'm using Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition.[url]......
I'm using Visual Basic 2006 and i am printing with a third party application call NovaPDF. It works very well.NovaPDF works like any printer and i'm having no problem using it. The thing is that i don't want to queue printing document because i need to rename and change their location. Also NovaPDF append to file. So, what i want to do is : Do some kind of loop that the program will loop in until my printer is done printing everything.[code]....
This is pankaj, I am currently working on the printing project. Here I have creating a custom paper(height = 1000mm and width = 800mm) on the printer via code and then trying to print the text on a specific location (for example. top = 1cm and left = 1cm). It does not print the text After trying many time i found that printable area, created by the code, is not changed but it is changing height and width as custom paper i have given in the code. But still it's printable area remains the same as previous paper kindly reply
Try Dim rptt As String = "The receipt is mine" Dim ss As System.IO.StreamWriter
The text, The reciept is mine, is written to a file called Receipt.txt as required. and a command is given to the printer but the printer does not print characters on the paper as the paper rolls out of the printer during printing process.
I am trying to develop a program that will open, print and then close the selected files from the listview.The file could be of any type, but I am particularly interested in autocad drawing files - .dwg format. The printing needs to be done at the printer. There is a multibox which allows the user to select the printer .
Currently, I can open the files and select the printer but I am really getting stuck at printing.
I have a RTB. I want to print the contents to a printer. KB 811401 does most of what I want. I want the on screen RTB to change size based on the settings of the selected printer. That way the user really gets WYSIWYG between the screen adn the printer. This application prints to labels so it is very important that what the user sees on the screen comes out exactly the same on the printer. Last night I think I found an example that linked the RTB to the printer, but it was an old version of VB that does not work with 2008 .NET and I can't find it today anyway.
i'm quite new to VB see my code i'm not sure where i enter your code Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load RichTextBox1.Text = "I print My text here.'filling the richtextbox with some text that can be used readily End Sub
Im making a POS system and so far all is great, im up to making the thermal printers work (2nd last thing on the list).I got my shiny new printers yesterday and they are a generic brand, they are compatible with epson commands (and yes it came with a book of ESC codes, which also confuse me).My issue is this, i "installed" them but windows will not recognise them as a printer. How can I print direct to them? baring in mind they are USB printers.I know it can do so in its current setup as there is a test program that prints fine.
I'm creating an application which has an scheduler to print and it checks if there is a pending job on the print queue before it prints the next file. I use a timer which checks if there is any file to be printed on my database. Example, the timer ticks and selected 10 files to be printed, it should print the 10 files 1 at a time, if there's no print queue, that's the only time the next file should print. I think another timer is required which will keeps on checking if print queue is done. How will i do this?
I am having an issue printing labels from a form in visual studio. I have looked at all of the links concerning this, and tried to adpt the code in my project to print labels/barcodes and can't seem to get it to work. I have a Zebra TLP 2844 label printer and when I send the ZPL Code to the label printer, it prints out the text of the code.
i am using Visual Basic.net 2008 and I need a way to print the web brower to the default printer. Now I have worked with printing set pixel ranges but big problems happen when a printer dialog box appears over the space of the webbrowser and gets printed! Could someone give me the general approach, sudo code?
I want to utilize the maximum paper area (A4 size sheet). Therefore I must get the minimum margins that specific printer can handle. I have more printers attached to th pc, so I can not hardcode these values. I have tried to set margins to zero, but that results in printing outside the page at right side and bottom:
trying to create a WPF application that will allow users to print a barcode label written in ZPL that is saved to a text file on the C: drive. I am able to print the barcode with the WPF Application except it prints the same serial # without incrementing to the next one. I would like have the application:Open the test.txt file and read the last serial # that was printed. Print the next serial #. Write the last serial # it printed to the file for the next it is printed so that if I printed 1,2,3 this time, the next time it would print 4,5,6. Below is my code for the test.txt file and my VB.net code.
test.txt ^XA ^LH20,10^AE^FDBUILD LABEL^FS
The printing process doesn't look pretty, but I was unable to get it to print with PrintDocument.Print() and I could by using a Process. I am guessing the issue is with intSN declaration not appending the serial # back to the test.txt file, instead, it adds the barcode back to the file.
I am facing a problem in printing document using custom paper sizes in dot matrix printer,i created a new paper size thru code and try to use the same paper size for printing, in preview it shows exactly [ giving output in same pape size ], but while printing the paper moves for A4/Letter and i cann't able to enable the Tear off Mode.i am using C# 2005.

I also don't want it to show me the printer dialog window (where i chose the printer, preferences etc...) Just a simple send to printer. how can i achieve that? Share your knowledge it's one way to achieve immortality.. [URL]
I'm trying to take a print on a Continuous Paper through a Thermal Printer ZP 2844 using Crystal Reports 2008 along with Visual Basic .NET 2008. I've set the page size to 3.00 inches as width & 3.00 inches as height. It prints well when the contents are a few on a single page but it puts gap when printing more than single page. There's no page margins set in crystal reports & the printing setup is the same in Crystal Reports as well as in Printer's Setup. Even in Print Preview of Crystal Report, it shows 2 pages to be printed but there's neither any gap at the end of first page & the start of second page. But! Still, a gap is shown when the report is printed. Here's an example how the print is show:
You can notice the gap between Item3 & Item4 which is due to next page or page break or so. I've noticed that in Crystal Report Viewer for Web, there's an option of SeparatePages = False which let you have a single/continuous page printing but I've not found any such option in Crystal Report Viewer for Desktop.
I have made a PRN file using the "Print to file" option, and now I want to make a VB.net application that will print it directly to a TCP/IP printer which is not currently installed on the computer. Is it possible to achieve this by simply opening a connection to the printer's IP and sending all the bytes of the PRN file to it, or is it more complex than that?
