Form on PCL

Post by Vanguarda » Sat May 16, 2009 12:47 am

Hi my friends,

somebody know about a sotware for create forms in PCL script? Just Like a ZEBRA Designer.

In my company, need create a form in PCL, but i don´t wanna write this code "on finger".


Thanks any information.

Regards,

;) Olá Paulo,
creio eu que não entendi muito bem sua pergunta.
O que você precisa criar exatamente ??
Estamos falando de PCL == Printer Command Language ??

;) Hi Paulo,
I have not understood very well your question. :?:
What do you need to create exactly?
Are we talking about PCL == Printer Command Language ??

Hi/Olá Salamandra,

//Português//
É exatamente isto. Preciso criar um formulário do "DANFE" em PCL (Printer Control Language da HP) e gostaria de saber se existe algum software que faz este tipo de formulário, mais ou menos igual ao ZEBRA Designer para etiquetas em impressoras ZEBRA (Linguagem ZPL). Ou alguma outro meio pra criar este "FORM".

Agradeço qualquer ajuda

It is exactly this. I need to create a form of "DANFE" in PCL (HP's Printer Control Language) and wonders whether there is any software that does this kind of form, more or less equal to ZEBRA Designer for printing labels on Zebra (ZPL Language). Or some other means for establishing this "form".

Thanks any help


Atenciosamente/Regards,

;) Olá Paulo,
Agora entendi.
Bom, penso que ai as possibilidades são varias:

1) Existe dando voltas na WWW um software gerador de relatórios que pode
ser que faça aquilo que você pretende (ou quase).
Se não me engano a URL é http://www.fast-report.com

2) Minha solução preferida: Montar um desenho em escala 1:1 no Corel Draw ou qualquer
outro programa de design gráfico e exporta-lo em formato JPG, GIF ou BMP (Monocromático).
Este arquivo de imagem será seu FORM (vazio).
Depois disso é so enviar o arquivo de imagem e seu Array ou DBF com os dados para a impressora
e pronto :D

3) Montar o formulário na unha (a pior de todas). :cry:

Eu utilizo a segunda opção e para mim funciona muito bem. :D

;) Hi Paulo
Now I understand your question.
Well, i think there are several possibilities:

1) Goto http://www.fast-report.com and download FAST REPORT.
Fast Report generates reports in several formats.
It may be that one of these formats be the one you need (or almost).

2) My preferred solution: Using Corel Draw or other program make a 1:1 scaled design
of DANFE and export it to JPG, GIF or BMP (B/W).
This image will become your empty REPORT.
Send the image file and your data Array or DBF fields to printer and you are done. :D

3) Programmatically ( the worst and hardest) :cry:

I am using 2nd option and works fine for me :D
