Multiple Copies Of Same Label Using Commander
I am exploring the possibility of using BarTender and Commander to print labels from our Windows application. For one set of data, I will need multiple labels, possibly as many as 1,500 exact copies.
Is there a way to send the number of labels as a parameter, or do I have to create a file with the same data listed 1,500 times?
In a Commander task you may actually issue as many commands as you want upon the detection of a trigger. Just configure the commands you want in the task, they could for example be multiple predefined BarTender commands, one after the other. Each command can make use of the same "%Trigger File Name%" to source the same print time data. However, be sure not to use the /DD command option to delete the data file until your final command is executed.
Of course if you use either Commander Script or XML Script in the contents of the trigger, the multiple commands can reside in the script itself.0
You can go to the label design and in the Print dialog, specify that the number of copies actually comes from one of the data fields. If you have trouble finding that, please post what version of BarTender you're using and someone can help you out.0
Yes, thanks Ian I might have got the wrong idea on your question. In the BarTender command you get set the number of copies which will result in the use of the /C command option. You can of course do the same in Commander Script or XML script like the below respectively:
Thank you, that is exactly what I was look for. I'm having trouble finding online documentation of all the possible command switches. Is this better documented in the help that comes with the software?0
Are you meaning the standard command line switches? You'll find this in the BarTender Help system under the "Automating BarTender>Automation with the command line interface>Command line parameter reference" topic.0
