Printing on Zebra TLP2844(barcode printer)

Post by quartz565 » Tue Dec 23, 2014 4:03 pm

Hello all,

I am sending a small example of the way i print thermal labels on a zebra printer and more specific on the TLP2844(barcode printer) model. I hope it will be useful and helpful for anyone interested in the same subject.

This specific printer uses the older version of EPL language and not the new EPL2(TLP2844Z printer) one and this is my way of printing on it.

Inside the attached rar file there is the Label_Read.docx file which explains the whole process step by step.

Many thanks!
I have such a printer. I'm using it as windows printer and works OK. But, I'm very interested in your solution and I'll test it after Christmas.
Thanks for sharing!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I've created whole system to project labels and print them later, but it's a part of whole big application. I'll try to cut off some code and make it indempendent.

Finding few time, I've decided to build standalone label manager :)
It's only first preview, so be patient. I'm attaching source code, dbf file and .exe.
Nice testing!
You can download it from my ftp:
