is there is an option in BarTende to encode a tag by using TID.

means read the TID, manipulate the data and than send the new data for encoding?

Hello,

If you want to know if BarTender can read the Unique Identifier of an RFID tag and use as a value on the printed label, this is currently not available in BarTender.

It has been entered as a feature request, so there might be the chance that we see this feature in a newer BT release.

thanks a lot.

do you know if editing NFC messages (NDEF for SMS, URL etc) also entered a feature request?

Apologies for reviving an old post, but what is the status of this feature request?

 

I would like to read the TID, perform some custom processing using the TID in VB, and then write the result of that processing to the RFID tag.

 

Is this ever going to be possible on a Datamax H-series printer? Reading the DPL spec, I cannot find an obvious way to retrieve data (i.e. the TID) from an RFID tag onto the PC running BarTender.

 

Thanks,

 

Jeroen

Currently, this feature isn't directly available yet in BarTender.

 

With regards to the printer language question, you would better contact the printer manufacturer and find out if it's possible (and how) to read the TID segment.

This feature isn't available yet in BarTender still?

We have RFID-printer Primera RX900. The printer manufacturer recommends the use the Seagul Bartender only. Can you suggest other possibilities of interaction with this printer.

Thanks.

Hello Domingo,

In a previous post you suggested that there might be a workaround

to be able to read the TID segment of the RFID Tag,

Would you be able to share that with us.

 

Thank you.

Hello Adam,

BarTender is supplied with a .NET SDK in the Automation Editions of BarTender. I was thinking on making use of a particular method which forms part of the Print Engine API. The method I was thinking on was Printer.ExecuteQueryAndWait().

An example on how this method can be used can be found on the below C# example:

 

Printer.ExecuteQueryAndWait Method

public void Demo()
{
   // Create a Printer object based on an installed printer's name.
   Printer printer = new Printer("Zebra 140XiIII Plus");

   // Create a query that will be used to request the desired information 
   // according to the printer's programming manual. In this case we'll 
   // request a printer head diagnostic.
   PrinterQueryCommand queryCommand = new PrinterQueryCommand("~HD");

   // Execute the query and wait until it completes.
   PrinterQueryResult result = printer.ExecuteQueryAndWait(queryCommand);

   // Report the query results
   if (result.Succeeded)
   {
      Console.WriteLine(result.ResponseText);
   }
   else
   {
      Console.WriteLine("Query failed.");
   }
}

 

 

However, I'm not sure if this method can be used at all in order to retrieve the current Unique Tag ID, as in the first place the printer would need to support this feature via printer commands.

Hello. Last message was from two years ago. Is this possible now? Our process would be much easier if we can read the TID first, receive data against that and then print the card.
