Zebra Mobile Printer Print Orientation (Invert 180 Degrees)

Hi there,

I have a question relating to Zebra mobile printers more specifically the ZQ620 model.

I know it is possible to set up the printer in printer properties/options what print orientation (rotate 180 degrees) to print a label.

I know it is also possible to configure the printer using the zebra setup utility tool in the configure printer settings/Orientation option and selecting the orientation option as either normal/Invert 180 degrees.

I know using the ZPL commands I can use the following to invert to change the print orientation using the POI command.

^XA^CFD ^POI ^LH330,10 ^FO50,50 ^FDZEBRA TECHNOLOGIES^FS ^FO50,75 ^FDVernon Hills, IL^FS ^XZ 

However, my question is whether this can be done using a command similar to below but for print orientation 180 degrees? As I am not printing to the printer using the ZPL commands and would like to change the print properties in code (c# .Net) opposed to having to configure the printer preferences manually.

     ! U1 getvar "ezpl.media_type"

     ! U1 setvar "ezpl.media_type" "gap/notch"

Thanks,

John

Hello John,I unable to find

Hello John,

I unable to find respective SGD command mentioned in ZPL and SGD Programming Guide:

https://www.zebra.com/content/dam/zebra/manuals/printers/common/programming/zpl-zbi2-pm-en.pdf

However I requested "allcv" report from my ZQ320 printer this way:

Using the SGD Allcv Command ! U1 getvar "allcv" <CR>

And I can see following line in a report:

zpl.print_orientation : nor , Choices: nor,inv

So you can check if this command is supported for your printer and try to use it this way:

! U1 getvar "zpl.print_orientation"

! U1 setvar "zpl.print_orientation" "inv"
