PCX Fornat -> send graphics to Zebra 2844 thermal printer
Posted on 2009-04-13
Using Delphi 7, I've successfully printed labels in batchmode using the 2844's form storing capability. Wonderful! The problem is I need a company logo printed as well, but I'm having a tricky time getting the 2844 to store the 1bit black and white pcx image.
1) I may need a known working pcx image if someone will share.
2) I may be sending the wrong DATA when sending EPL to store an image (it says in the programming guide to send PCX "binary data" format file). I am opening the pcx using blockread and then assembling a string variable from the blockread data buffer to send as the DATA EPL argument in:
Do I need to translate each byte read to binary (e.g. "c" = 110) to send as the DATA ?
