command to answer hasFormat with boolean

Hi,

 

I'm using Browser Print and a GK420d printer. I've stored a format, "TRIAL.ZPL" on the E: drive. I want to send a command from my javascript through Browser Print that tells me if my format is there. I know I can use the following in ZPLII:

 

^XA

^HWE:TRIAL.ZPL

^XZ

 

but that returns a multiline string like this:

 
- DIR E:TRIAL.ZPL  
* E:TRIAL.ZPL      50                    

-   1516624 bytes free E: ONBOARD FLASH

which is a pain to parse. I'd like a Boolean return instead. Is there a command (SGD, ZPL, etc.) that will do that?

Hi Jennifer, I'm afraid not. 

Hi Jennifer, I'm afraid not.  Even all of our tools parse the string.  There are a few other, easier to parse, options with some of the newer printers, but even those are not ideal for this use case.
