Hi guys, I am relatively new to mobile printing in general, so I would appreciate any help or advice.
So far I have been able to (relatively easily) print the basic text using the code below:
var addressLn1 = 'Company Name';
var addressLn2 = 'Street 1';
var addressLn3 = 'Street 2';
var addressLn4 = 'City';
var addressLn5 = 'County';
var addressLn6 = 'ZipCode';
var tel = 'Tel: 99999999'
var fax = 'Fax: 99999999'
var vat = 'VAT Reg No: xxxxxxxxxxxx'
var printCommand = "! 0 200 200 500 1" +
' |TEXT 5 3 350 40 INVOICE'+
' |TEXT 5 0 30 150 '+addressLn1+
' |TEXT 5 0 30 175 '+addressLn2+
' |TEXT 5 0 30 195 '+addressLn3+
' |TEXT 5 0 30 215 '+addressLn4+
' |TEXT 5 0 30 235 '+addressLn5+
' |TEXT 5 0 30 255 '+addressLn6+
' |TEXT 5 0 400 215 '+tel+
' |TEXT 5 0 400 235 '+fax+
' |TEXT 5 0 400 255 '+vat+
' |FORM ' +
'|PRINT ' + '|';
var stringtoPrint = GeopalPrint.getPrintString(printCommand); //converts the string to hex
GeopalPrint.printHex(stringtoPrint); //calls the printer and passes the bufferArray of hex
This prints nicely as expected, Invoice as a title then the address and contact details laid out underneath.
The problem I am having is I cannot seem to find a way to pass an image to the printer using CPCL, i have an image stored on the device (inside the third-party app) and i have said images file-path. The image is of format .png.
Does anyone have any experience in a similar scenario as me? I have trolled the internet and can only find examples of web or Android development.
**I do have a little leeway in the JS in that I can add a HTML page and install AngularJs if that will open any doors for me?
Any Help or advice would be very much appreciated!
