    USB host port opening in ZBI for data input

    Ines Alcantara

      Hi all,

       

      While creating a ZBI program for a ZT410 printer, I am trying to open port USB host (the one on the front of the printer) for data input. The idea is to use a barcode scanner directly connected to the printer to input variable data that will then be included in the label to be printed.

       

      I have checked the ZBI programming manual, but only the following ports are included:

      Port/Connection > ZBI Name > Preferred Access Commands/Functions

      Serial > "SER" > OPEN, CLOSE

      Parallel > "PAR" > OPEN, CLOSE

      USB > "USB" > OPEN, CLOSE

      ZPL parser > "ZPL" > OPEN, CLOSE

      TCP Server > "TCP", "TCPX" > SERVERSOCKET, SERVERCLOSE, ACCEPT, CLOSE

      TCP Client > "TCP" > CLIENTSOCKET, CLOSE

      UDP Server > "UDP" > SERVERSOCKET, SERVERCLOSE, ACCEPT, CLOSE

      UDP Client > "UDP" > CLIENTSOCKET, CLOSE

      Email Sender > "EML" > OPEN, CLOSE

      Bluetooth > "BLU" > OPEN, CLOSE

       

      The instruction in which it would be included would be the following:

      40 OPEN # 2 : NAME "USB_HOST" --> Where "USB_HOST" has been my last try

       

      Can anybody help providing the correct ZBI name for that port?

       

      Thank you in advance for your help
