Refer to "How can i print special separator like GS RS EOT in QR code using ZPL?" for encoding special characters in QR code and barcode, including HT(horizontal tab, \09). If \09 doesn't work in ^B7, then try \t for tab.
Hi Steven Si
Here is a sample of what I am trying to do. I have underlined below both where I tried \09 and \t. It just does not seem to work.
What I send to print:
When scanned, this is the text I get:
I have also tried just "\9" and it did not work either. Just not sure whats wrong... any more ideas?
Hi Steven Si,
Yeah our after that post I came to the same conclusion and began using ^FH. But unfortunately this is not a true representation of a tab. What I mean by that is if you print it and scan it into notepad, it does display the tab but if you scan into into Notepad++, you wont see the tab space at all! Further more, in notepad++ if you select the option to "Show all characters" from the toolbar, it does not show the character of tab. So there is a difference with what notepad and notepad++ show.
This does not happen with carriage return "\&". This does show a carriage return in both cases correctly.
But for tab neither \_09 nor _09 show true tab. Much to my regret, I need a true representation of tab.

The _09 is actually the correct answer. The customer was doing something wrong.
