Does anyone have a translation table for the Star Micronics TSP700 printer?
Good morning, Dave.
I think there is a standard driver for Windows available for this printer, so P_MSWINX should be ok.
But if you need some specialities: what do you really need in this DTL?
Just the ordinary FF7reset/xyz? Then P_DEFAULT may still do the Job.
Can you provide a link to the "Programmers manual" for this printer?
Here is a link to the programmers manual for this printer.
We are currently using the P_MSWINNT translation table with some success. I was hoping to find a translation table specific for this printer so when the users decide to take advantage of some of it's extra capabilities I'd be one step ahead of them.
your customer accesses the printer through the normal uniface printing mechanism so he is not free to do whatever he likes.
so (if I remember it well, it was 1996) we used some text attributes to specify control sequences like:
bold-on: switch barcode printing on
bold-off: turn barcode printing off
The other focus was on the INIT sequences sent to the printer to have a proper print of "Umlauts" etc.
Another way we used was creating an ASCII file and wrap some escape codes around it and copy it to the printer-port as binary.
A lot of options,
a lot to do.
