how to send a code to the printer, then pause for x seconds, then print the label Follow
When sending a print job to a Datamax printer, the 'cancel existing print job' checkbox will only cancel the next job to print but leave any others in the internal buffer. In order to clear the lot I need to send SOH * [chr(01) then "*"]. I can do that in the printer driver at the start of print job, however the printer needs a few seconds to be ready to receive the next design. If I use the printer driver it misses the label design as it arrives too soon after the clear command.
I would like to use the Vbscript event OnPrintJobStart to send the characters to the printer then wait 10000ms (using the sleep command) but I don't know how to send those characters. What command would I use?
I am looking for something along the lines of:
but I think I am being too simplistic, and I can't fathom the syntax.
