Print Logo/Graphics with Zebra printer

Hi all, how i can print a logo with smartforms without installing Zebra's BAR-ONE software?

Have I to use the ZPL II codes?

Hi Ale,

You dont need a Zebra bar one tool for printing graphics from smartforms. You need to have propers drivers and proper settings in place. Take a look at the OSS notes 750772 - Information on the ZPL-II printer driver for SmartForms

Check the point 5 in the above oss notes:

5) Support of bitmap graphics

Colored bitmap graphics from SmartForms are changed to black and white when you print from the LZPL printer driver. If the picture quality is affected by this conversion, change the graphic to B/W with a graphics program (such as PaintShop Pro), and import it to SmartForms as as a black and white graphic. Monochrome graphics are not converted by the driver. However, all graphics may be justified to adjust the size of the graphic to the printer resolution (203, 300 or 600 dpi).

During the import to SmartForms, you have the option to flag a bitmap as "resident". In this case, the LZPL printer driver saves the graphic in the RAM of the printer when it first occurs (Device "R:" of the zebra printer). At the end of the spool request, the driver deletes the graphic again from the printer's RAM, so that no more memory remains occupied.

Resident graphics during label printing from SmartForms are therefore only faster if more than one label is printed within a spool request, and the resident graphic is repeated on each label.

I hope this info helps.
