Well, you could start with something like this.

var
  pic : TBitmap;
  picjpg : TJPEGImage;
begin
  pic := TBitmap.Create;
  try
    ScreenShot(0,0,Screen.Width,Screen.Height,pic);
    picjpg.Assign(pic);

Open in new window


Then you can do anything with the jpeg. If you need it in pcx, then you'll need tools or the code behind them. This one works well http://www.efg2.com/Lab/Library/Delphi/Graphics/PCX.ZIP
If you really don't want to use it as a tool, then just extract the code you need and use that.

The method of sending it to the printer should be in your API reference for the printer.

The Zebra ProgrammingLanguugae II is described here: http://www.ptshome.com/kb/Manuals/ZPL_Vol1.pdf
(Apparently zthere is also a vol II, but I just read vol I).
I suggest you use the "^GF" command described on page 156.
I would also suggest to simply use binary data ("B").
If I remember my own implementaion of Zebra printing correctly, the binary data is simply sent row by row with 8 pixels combined in one byte in the obvious manner, and the row length must be a multilpe of 8 (i.e. complete bytes).
e.g.
^GFA,8,8,1,7E81A581A5BD817E

Open in new window

.
should produce a smiley 8 by 8 pixels
^GFA,32,32,2,07e01a58249449224002b801a81db981824183c19009581a47e22004181807e0

.
a more elaborate one

Hi wanna96,

Sending stuff to a Zebra or Stripe printer is not difficult at all,
just put all label data in a text file, FTP it to the printer and it will work.
There are 2 advantages of FTPing instead of using drivers etc
1-No risk of getting extra information from the driver in your datastream.
2-FTP it to an other address (a server) and you are able to see what is exactly send from your application.

Regards,
Murph
