    Printing and scanning a Tab character

    Carlos Bueno

      Hi all

       

      I am currently using the GX420d and I am trying to code some text data into it to print and then scan it.

      I have managed to find out now that I can use "\&" to create a carriage return between text data.

      But whats the character I need to use to add a tab between data. For example "Surname {TAB} Firstname " ?

      I cant just use space because I need specifically the character set for TAB.

      Also I am a developer in C# and I have tried "(char)9" but that does not get translated into TAB when printed because when I try to scan it, it does not show the TAB spacing.

      I want to print it into ^B7, 2D bar code.

      Any ideas?

       

      Thanks
