I was wondering if anyone has ever had to interface to a Datamax Prodigy
Plus Thermal Label printer using Progress 7.3e.
I am currently trying (unsuccessfully) to get the printer to respond to
enlarged lettering and some simple graphics. It will print small text but
the initialization string for large print comes out as small print plus the
Here is a sample of what ASCII code must be sent to the printer:
If you type the above into the DOS editor and print it to the printer, it
will print the label properly.
Here is a sample of Progress code that I have tried:
put "~002" "~114" "~015". /*Initialize
Printer (appears to work)*/
put "~1911020002250010" "TEST" "~015". /*Formatting string plus text (This
line doesn't work)*/
put "~105". /*Tells the printer
that the print sequence has ended (assumed to work)*/
I would really appreciate any assistance that anyone can give.
