I currently have two Datamax I4308 printers attached to my PXI chassis. I am using two printers because the products I am testing require two completely different die cut labels. Using the EasyLabel Platinum software I created my labels and also created a text file that contains the image of the label.
From this text file I can search for a static serial number and replace it with the correct one when each device passes the production test.
I am having trouble finding a way to send this image, contained in the text file, to the printer via the USB ports. When I tried using the easy report VI's the printer starts printing the text file rather than the "label image."
If anyone has any ideas on how work through this it would be greatly appreciated. I miss the good ol' days of RS-232.
Thanks in advance for all of your help.
I am a little confused by the format of your textfile. Could you please this along with a basic VI that prints the text file.
