VB Printing To Zebra TLP2844 Printing

Hi all,

I am using to print some receipts with barcode to a Zebra TLP2844 printer from Visual Basic. The printing and alighnment all working fine and we are using the label of size 4.25" length * 1.25" width.

The problem is that after one label printed, the label continuously skipping, we want to stop at the start of next label. I have tried many way by adjusting the properties of the printer, but no effect. The following is the same code to use.

Can any one help help on this how we can stop the skipping once one label printed...?

Open printer.port For Output As #ff

Print #ff, Chr(13)
Print #ff, "N" + Chr(13)
Print #ff, "D" + <Darkness.Text> + Chr(13)

Print #ff, "A" + <CompanyNameX.Text> + "," + CompanyNameY.Text + ",0," + CompanyNameFont.Text + "," + CompanyNameH.Text + "," + CompanyNameW.Text + ",N," + Chr(34) + Companyname.Text + Chr(34) + Chr(13)
Print #ff, "B" + "150" + "," + "120" + "," + EO + "," + "1," + Trim(BarcodeN.Text) + ",1," + h + "," + EF + "," + Chr(34) + Trim(TestNumber.Text) + Chr(34) + Chr(13)
Print #ff, "P" & Quantity & Chr(13)
Close #ff

Help Printing To Zebra Using EPL
Hi, I'm trying to print to a zebra LP2824 and whilst I can print line by line I can't seem to print using the EPL codes.

THis works okay;
Edit: Added VB Tags to make your code more readable.

Dim prt As Printer
Dim prtname As String

For i = 0 To Printers.Count - 1
prtname = Printers(i).DeviceName
If InStr(1, prtname, "Zebra") Then
cmbPrinters.AddItem Printers(i).DeviceName
If InStr(1, prtname, machineName.Text) Then
currentPrt.Text = Printers(i).DeviceName
End If
End If
Next i

For Each prt In Printers
If prt.DeviceName = currentPrt.Text Then
Set Printer = prt
Exit For
End If

Printer.Print " Mr. Colin Evans"
Printer.Print " Somewhere in Wales,"
Printer.Print "SY12 34Y"
Printer.Print ""

but what i want to print is the following using the EPL codes

A0,2,0,3,1,1,N,"Mr. Colin Evans"
A0,24,0,3,1,1,N,"Somewhere in Wales, "
A0,46,0,3,1,1,N,"SY12 34Y"

I've tried the following

Dim Activestring As String

Activestring = "" & vbCrLf & "N" & vbCrLf
Activestring = Activestring & "R130,0" & vbCrLf
Activestring = Activestring & "ZB" & vbCrLf
Activestring = Activestring & "A0,2,0,3,1,1,N,""Mr. Colin Evans""" & vbCrLf
Activestring = Activestring & "A0,24,0,3,1,1,N,""Somewhere in Wales, """ & vbCrLf
Activestring = Activestring & "A0,46,0,3,1,1,N,""SY12 34Y""" & vbCrLf
Activestring = Activestring & "P1" & vbCrLf

Printer.Print Activestring
But all it does is print exactly what Activestring equals including all the EPL commands

A0,2,0,3,1,1,N,"Mr. Colin Evans"
A0,24,0,3,1,1,N,"Somewhere in Wales, "
A0,46,0,3,1,1,N,"SY12 34Y"

I've done a search but obviously I need to do something to tell the printer to accept the EPL commands

ANy idea's, thanks

Printing On A Zebra Without Pauses
Greetings to everyone.

I made a program that prints information on labels using a dot-matrix printer and now we are using a Zebra printer for thermal printing. I did not change the code and it prints OK, but the thing is that now with the Zebra if I print a rather large amount of information (say for a couple of hundred labels) the Zebra printer acts strange: it prints a row or "page" of labels but then it stops for a second, prints another row, stops, does this with a couple of rows more and then it prints the rest non-stop.

The problem is that here at work some of the labels need to printed by the thousands some times and when trying to do this instead of stopping like 7 times for 100 labels it stops about 20 times for 600 hundred labels, and the more labels the more it stops. In all cases the last portion of labels is printed non-stop.

I called Zebra and they recommended changing the printer port from ECP to AT, but that didn't help. This is the code:

Printer.FontName = "Arial"
Printer.FontSize = 8

For x = 1 to n 'labelstoprint
Printer.CurrentY = 500
Printer.CurrentX = 1000
Printer.Print = "Text to print"
Next x


As you can see, each time I print a file is created with "n" pages and sent to the printer. I tried moving the Printer.EndDoc command inside the For-Next so that "n" files with 1 page were sent to the printer but the result is the same.

The question is: is there something I can do to make the printer print all the information non-stop?

For the moment we are not planning on using ZPL language because it would take more time to change the code.

Thank you very much in advance.

Zebra Printer Printing
I am converting code from IGP to ZPL and I wanted to know if anyone had any kind of code samples for me to look at.  

Here is an excerpt of what was coded in VB to a printronix printer.  What would it be like in ZPL?

Printer.Print "^PY^-"
Printer.Print "^PY^-"
Printer.Print "^F^-"       
Printer.Print "^H44^-"
Printer.Print "^IPAGE,LAND^-"
Printer.Print "^M0201420^T0040"; Format(Date, "y") 'julian date
Printer.Print "^M0100010^T0393 QUANTITY (Q)"  
Printer.Print "^I000^-"
Printer.Print "^O^-"
Printer.Print "^PN^-"

Thanks to all who contribute in Advance!


Printing Using EPL2 To Zebra LP2844
I am trying to print EPL2 commands to a LP2844 Label printer but they are being interpreted as text - no matter what I do. (see code below) If however I type the commands into a .dat file and then copy the .dat file to LPT1 using a .bat file the printer prints fine???

Has this happened to anyone before? Any ideas?? THANKS

Printing To Zebra Printer With ZPL Or Printer Object

I know that this question isn't all VB, but I tried to get some info in the barcode forum, but there isn't any traffic there so I thought I could try here.

For the past 10 or 15 years we have used two Zebra label printers hooked up to a computer via serial port and  have sent ZPL to it. We decided to upgrade to newer Zebra printers with network cards so we can print images on the labels, which they have pretty much done what I planned, but I am running into some complications.

With the new printers I used VB6’s printer object and set X and Y coordinates to print my text and bar codes on the labels just like I do with many other documents that I send to HP LaserJets. I am not going to get into the issues that I am having, because I don't think it is relevant (but if you think so I will post it).

My main question is everything I read says to write the txt file and send ZPL to the printer. Why is this used instead of VB6's printer object? I have about 80 users that send print jobs to these printers and wondered if creating a ZPL file was a better way of printing. And, if writing a ZPL text file, where would be a proper place to save the file before it is sent to the printer.

Any input or experience would be greatly appreciated, I am going crazy with this!


Printing Printing Printing Printing Report Confused Help
Hey guys,

I want to print following bill. It has already been printed.
I want to fill some data in it and want to print it.

Have a look at attached image of the bill.
Dimensions are given too.

I tried with data report.
I put total field in report footer and send the value of this field from code itself.
But if there are 2 items then total field prints immediately after that.
whereas it should be printed at the bottom in front of the word TOTAL(printed in bill).

How to get it at right position?

How can I maintain the margins and dimensions each side?

Will data report do? or anything else should be right for doing this.

Help me people.

Problem Printing EXCEL After Printing Using A Macro In WORD
I have a strange problem...

I have created a WORD template which contains some buttons to print the document on a certain printer, with or without a logo. This is some standard VBA and works OK.

Application.ActivePrinter = "HP LaserJet 4250 PS"
Now here is the problem:
A document is printed using the macro in WORD.
Then if I want to print something in EXCEL to the "HP LaserJet 4250 PS", nothing is printed!!
However, if I print the EXCEL-sheet to any other printer, it is printed and then the excel sheet can be printed again on the "HP LaserJet 4250 PS"...

(I use Office 2003)

I have no clue what is causing this problem and how to solve this...

Can anyone help me with this??

Printing Problem With EditCopy() When Printing An MsChart In VB.NET

Please I really need help! Here's my problem: I have a MsChart graphic in a form and I would like to print it. I red many post about printing with MsChart but none had my answer. My graphic have modified axis values because I only want to show the positive axis parts (of x and y). My problem is that my axis settings appear in the form but not on the paper! I know that as soon as I use EditCopy() function in my printing process, axis settings return to their initials values. Look at this MSDN description of EditCopy():

"Since both the data and the picture of the chart are stored on the clipboard, what gets pasted into the new application varies depending on the type of application. For example, if you execute the chart's EditCopy method in your code and then go to an Excel spreadsheet and select Edit Paste, the chart data set is placed in the spreadsheet. To insert the picture of the chart into the spreadsheet, select Edit Paste Special and select the Picture type."

I was wondering how to keep my axis setting on the paper by printing only the part of my graphic that is shown in the form and not the full graph. Is there an other way to print a MsChart without using the clipboard (Since no arguments can by pass to editcopy() to make it work the way I want) ?

Thanks you


VB Printing Using Printform And Disabling The Printing... Notification Pop-up
Has anyone had any issues with using the (VB6.0) form.Printform statement and had a "Printing..." pop-up not go away. The application is simply printing a form and sometimes the notification pop-up "Printing..." remains on the screen. The application is running on a W/2000 server and the printer is spooled on this server. There are actually 15 different printers and the user can select the printer. This looks like a resource issue but I am completely mystified on this one. Help anyone... Rick..

VB Data Report Printing Vs Dos App. Printing Speed

So there is any way to print report from VB dos-base like (character wise).

Suggestion On Printing A From With High Quality Printing

I capture the form image to clipboard, send the contents of clipboard to an invisible picture box and then print that picture box. So i have the whole form image printed to the paper as I wanted. But the problem is the medium quality of the result. Can anyone suggest me a better way of printing the form (higher printing quality) ?
Thank you everyone for all possible replies...

Printing A Picture &amp; Printing A Box Around Text
I have a customer where I have to print many different reports. The customer desires 2 things, they are:
1. That the header containg their name, address etc. be printed on a receipt with a box surrounding the text. They would also like another section to have a box surrounding the printed data.
2. That a picture be printed at the top of the receipt showing their vineyard.

I could find no info in the many books that I have on how to do this.
Can anyone steer me in the right direction?

ZPLII Or Windowsdriver For ZEBRA Printer?

Is there anyone out here with experience of ZEBRA labelprinters I use DA402. So far i use ZPLII and serial communication to the printer. But no my application needs to be able to print any language around our globe. Writing Russian, Eastern european, Chinese, and japanese is exciting. And its getting messy to handle all codepages and different characters on my own

So i tried out ZEBRAs windows printerdriver. It works ok then as a normal printer. I can now print any character that my computer can produce... BUT there always a BUT.

I loose controll over some things. Like layout of barcodes for example.

In ZPL I do like this.


I will get a rotated barcode I2OF5 87 dots high, no interpretation line under, no interpretationline over and no checkdigit added. Exactly what i want

When i use windowsdriver i can only set the font to I2OF5 and set the sice so it match my 87 points then print the numbers 27150010006109. This will give me a
Not rotated barcode with interpretationline under. NOT WHAT I WANT

Do any of you know how i can controll my printing still using windows to have the grate gain of the forreign characters. But still be able to controll barcodes or other things like labelwidth, length. Is there a way to send ZPLII commands to the printer together with windowdsdriver on the same label?

Thanks for any suggestions

** RESOLVED ** Zebra Barcode Printer Question ...
I am using a Zebra 4M 200 d.p.i bar code printer, and can't get it to accept my ZPL commands.

I have read the FAQ's on Zebras site, and it seems Windows based apps don't interprate these commands, but print them "as is", which is basically where I am at.

A solution is to change the driver to "Generic Text Only", which should resolve the issue. I changed it and now it doesn't print at all !!!

A check at this point (apparently) is to make sure that the "Control Prefix" and the "Format Prefix" are the same. They weren't. The "Control Prefix" was set to "~" and the "Format Prefix" was set to "^". I made them both "^" and still no joy, so I made them both "~" and guess what ...... !!!!

I am now running out of ideas, and I REALLY hope someone out there has some ZPL experience and can help me out .......

Printing In VB
Hi guys..

I have a database (Access) and I have extracted all my data from the dbase. I have 2 questions here:

1. How do i open a text file and put all this data into it. Eventually, this will become a report in a text file

2. How do I print this text file?? I am using a network printer




I have to print a picture, a couple of lines of text and quite a few variables (strings mostly). One sheet of paper has to be filled. these lines of text do not appear on any of my forms, but the variables do. Since I've got no clue how to code for printing , i'd like to ask for an easy but good way of doing this. I also have to generate a print preview. Can anyone help me? (i'm a complete newbie , so if i have to use some components that are not standard, tell me where to find them)


BTW: it has to be possible to run this on different computers with different printers.

Printing VBA Help
Need to print Microsoft Visual Basic Help file (which is displayed when Help menu is clicked in VBE) with the same directory way it is available, say, complete list of the contents & topic wise; similar to a book.
A command to print evrything in one go.
One can select the topic & print but the page formatting, say setting marging, is not available, so the printed one is occupying almost the whole page & not good for filing.
Can anyone guide?

I am just curious, how does the connection between a printer work, and is there a way to send a command to print a file through the parallel/LAN port?

Help Printing
I wrote a program for use in a restaurant POS (Point of Sale). The purpose of the program is to order food, keep track of sales, manage employee's time for payroll purposes, etc. There's only one problem... I don't know how to send a "ticket" to a receipt printer. Please keep in mind a receipt printer is not your typical printer... it prints on small thermal paper, like a Wal-Mart receipt would. Anyway, I don't think I need to use the .printform method because I don't wany any graphics, only text and I'm limited by paper size. So, does anyone know how I can send multiple lines of text to a receipt printer?

Printing PDF's From VB 6.0
To All,

Sorry if this has been answered before, but I've searched this site numerous times, as well as the internet in general and I can't find the answer to my problem. I am trying to print a bunch of PDF's to a specific printer from VB. My programming skills are very strong and I know what I want to do ... I just lack a little bit of the OO declaration portion of VB. As suggested, have added "pdf.ocx" to my project.

I've found lots of snippets of code both here and on the internet, but none of them are complete enough to use - generally it is because they don't include the declarations. One example I found is: (Not including the Wait sub for brevity)

What is lacking is how is Pdf1 declared? I have tried numerous ways to define Pdf1, but none of them work. In the case below, how should I properly declare/define Pdf1.

Thanks in advance,

At wits end,


Private Sub Form_Load()

dim w as Integer
dim ChosenFile(3) as String
' set the values for ChosenFile and w
For w = 1 To 3
Pdf1.LoadFile ChosenFile(w)
Pdf1.printPages 1, 1

Wait 5
Next w

End Sub

Printing In VBA

Printing To PDF
OK - I tried searching the forums for info on this, but "pdf" is too short of a keyword to search with.

I am trying to set up a macro within my Excel Workbook that will allow users to print the file as a PDF. I am running across a small problem, though.

Here is what I would like to do, ideally:

1) Have the user run the macro
2) The macro will export the visible sheets in the workbook as a PDF document.

Here is what I am doing right now:

1) The user runs the macro
2) The macro attempts to print the workbook to a "prn" file, but gives me the following error:


You are attempting to print a multi-page EPS file
Please print a single page to ensure that EPS output is correct.

How do I get rid of that error? Is there any way to cut out the middle man (Acrobat Distiller) and actually export the workbook as a PDF?

I would include the code I am using, but it works through multiple subs, and is somewhat complicated. If you need to see my code, I will include it.

Hello all,

Here is my problem. I have picture box on my form with labels, textboxes etc.

I want to send this picture box to a print preview form. I'm usi ngthe code found on here

I've changed it a little. Here is my code

I call the procedure via:

PreviewForm.HiddenPict.Width = wid
PreviewForm.HiddenPict.Height = hgt

'Make it use the same scale as the Printer.
PreviewForm.HiddenPict.Scale (-1, -1.5)-(7.5, 9.5)

'Draw the preview onto the hidden PictureBox.

The procedure DrawPrintOut is as follows:
' Draw the printout on prn, either a PictureBox

Problem occurs on prn.PaintPicture Img.Picture, 0, 1 / 25 stateing its an invalid picture. Why?

If I were load a picture into the picture box all works well. Just won't print any of the labels even though they are visible in the picture box.

Help me please....

I have only covered printing once for like 5 seconds. But I don't remember anything about it except something like Printer.whatever.... I think?

.TIF Printing
Can someone explain a little better why Visual Basic 6 can't print .TIF files. Is there any way at all? I tried out the GDI from onerror but my files are too big. Is there any other way to print .TIF from Visual Basic 6?

Printing From VB
I want to be able to print from the text boxes on my screen. However the text boxes are in an array.

rst.Open "Select Question From Questions, Archive WHERE Archive.Archive_Status = 'NA' AND Questions.Survey_ID = '" & ResultsID & "' AND Questions.Question_ID = '" & QuestionID & "'", cnn, adOpenKeyset

numlink = 1 'data_options = amount of questions needed

While Not rst.EOF

Load txtQuestions(numlink)

'Directly positions text boxes on the page
txtQuestions(numlink).Top = txtQuestions(numlink - 1).Top + txtQuestions(numlink - 1).Height + 100
txtQuestions(numlink).Left = txtQuestions(numlink - 1).Left
txtQuestions(numlink).Tag = txtQuestions(numlink).Top
txtQuestions(numlink).Text = rst("Question").Value

txtQuestions(numlink).Visible = False

numlink = numlink + 1



If I wanted to print all of the text boxes, is it possible??

Printing Help
Hello all,

I can't figure something out and i have being searching for a long time. I am printing a variable that I have to a windows printer. My problem is that my variable is 624 characters, but only a very small portion of my variable gets sent to the driver.

Can you shed some light on this for me, some of my code is below.

If cmbPrinters.Text = "Main Printer" Then

For i = 0 To Printers.Count - 1
If Printers(i).DeviceName = gstrSecondPrinter Then
Set Printer = Printers(i)
Exit For
End If
Next i

MsgBox strLabelString
Printer.Print strLabelString

P.S. this is VB6

thanks so much
