I am using CPCL in Android.


Audience

I would like to write multiple lines on a printout, but my code is printing them out on top of eachother. I am using CPCL in Android.

String cpclData = "! 0 200 200 210 1\r\n"
                                            + "TEXT 5 0 20 10 " + receiptString() + " \r\n" //type, font, size, x position, y position, data
                                            + "FORM\r\n"
                                            + "PRINT\r\n";

                                    connection.write(cpclData.getBytes());

How can multiple lines be achieved?

Hi,
You have two choices, either print each line and give it a location, or print in line mode:
String cpclData = "! 0 200 200 210 1\r\n"
                                            + "TEXT 5 0 20 10 " + line1() + " \r\n" //type, font, size, x position, y position, data
                                            + "TEXT 5 0 20 30 " + line2() + " \r\n" //type, font, size, x position, y position, data
                                            + "TEXT 5 0 20 50 " + line3() + " \r\n" //type, font, size, x position, y position, data
                                            + "FORM\r\n"
                                            + "PRINT\r\n";
or

String cpclLineData = "! U1 SETLF 10\r\n"
                                            + "Test line One\r\nTest line Two\r\nTest line 3\r\n";
