Thanks for the reply.
I am using LV 8.6.1. I am working on a project, which tests DUT and, at every end of the test, LV should tell printer to print date , below that , barcode and under this serial number . I have not used serial communication in labview much. Could you please help me how can i send the commands from labview to the printer ?

I am able to communicate via parallel communication (not by using lv). I am fialed to do via serial.
I tried to communicate via parallel port using visa, it bit confusing.
I want to print label of size 17mmx35mm . i ahve attached document , in which i placed two label structures i wanted to print.
And can you help me how can i send ZPL command in labbview?, how does lv communicates with parallel port? TPL1?
I really need to complete this task tommorow.
Please help me.

Here is a modified version of the example I suggested. It includes the option of using the parallel port for communication. I am in the process of getting some example ZPL for you for the label formats that you are using.This example should give you everything you need to communicate with the printer.
