Printing String

Solved!
Go to solution

I am trying to print this string and for whatever reason when the printer starts to print the text does not show up.

 

for example i put in "Harold" for the string and the printer prints out a blank piece of paper

 

here is the code:

also I would like to add that I am printing from a label printer so they are not normal sized pieces of paper

I can't open your code, since I'm still using 8.5, but I recently had a similar problem using a brother label printer.  Turns out the margins were set so big they were overlapping leaving no printable area on the label.

In my vi, i used the "easy text report" vi, which has a "margins" cluster input terminal at the top.  I set all margins to 0.15.
