    ZPL to Print Void

    Musab Popatia

      Our printer prints a bunch of "void" on the label if something goes wrong. Is there a way to manually tell the printer to "void" the label in the same fashion using ZPL?

          Hello Musab,

           

          Could you please to provide more details and clarify your question? What exactly do you mean as "something goes wrong"? What exactly happens? Also, what do you mean as 'to "void" the label in the same fashion'? Could you please to share a photo of your label with "void" values? What model of printer you are using? What is the language used to create your labels? Isn't it a ZPL?

              Thanks for the reply.

               

              We are using the R110Xi4 printer.

               

              In our case, the label is already printed and encoded and I was just reading the RFID label using ZPL. In the development process, as I was testing out stuff, sending malformed/incorrect ZPL would cause the printer to print "void" over the label. See the photos below to get an idea of what I mean by the printer printing "void" in the same fashion (basically an infinite amount of "void"). I just want to know if there's some way to achieve the same result using ZPL?

               

              Thanks.

              If you are trying to encode RFID tag and the media (RFID tag roll) is not calibrated, then you would see "VOID" be printed out across the label. You need to follow the RFID tag calibration procedure by calibrating the label first, then followed by calibrating the RFID. Hope this helps.
