    Hello Domingo,

     

    sorry for the late answer.

     

    The printer is a Toshiba B-EX4T1-TS12-QM-R,

    the driver used is Seagull TEC B-EX4T1-T.

     

    Regards,

    John

    I believe the only possible way of achieving this would be to make of BarTender's .NET SDK in order to automate the print job. You would then need to make use of the "ExecuteQueryandWait" method from the "Printer" class from the Seagull.BarTender.Print namespace in order to query the printer with a printer command and wait for the result. However, I do not have an example on how this could be done. Perhaps the printer manufacturer can give you some help on which printer command would need to be send to the printer in order to get the status of the RFID tag.

    Frist, thank you. Now I can determine the RFID-Tag data by calling "ExecuteQueryandWait".

     

    Is it possible send one print job with about 100 labels to the printer and call the "ExecuteQueryandWait"-method for each label?

    Or do I have to print each label in its own print job?

     

    It tested a little bit and I send the read RFID-Tag data command via userdefined printer commands (label end). Is it possible to get the Information which is send back from the printer to the print job initiator?

    I don't think you will be able to call "ExecuteQueryandWait" for RFID tags encoded in the same print job. It will probably need to be sent as separate print jobs, one label per print job.

     

    With regards to sending back the information when sending the read RFID-tag command via "User Commands", no, this won't be possible. You will need to use the .NET SDK for this.
