Bug Vb Script With Printer Code Modifiers With Dpl Raster Image Follow
I first noticed this issue a year ago with Datamax printers (doesn't happen with Zebra). However, I dropped it when I found a way to do what I needed using only Action List.
Now, I'm back with the same issue and I have to use the VBscript option. Here's the bug:
When sending a job for a Datamax H-class printer, with rasterized fonts and images, the PCM.ReadLine and PCM.WriteLIne loop will strip out space characters that are part of the rasterized image data. The printer then 'hangs' because the image is corrupted. Only recourse is to reboot printer before printing anything else. But I can never get a printjob with rasterized images to get past the PCM VBscript issue.
I've attached file output. One file prints fine without the VBScript operating, while the other hangs the printer. Note the missing white spaces in the 2nd file. Note also that the remaining white space characters in the 2nd file are actually tab characters. The issue seems to be with ASCII 30 being either ignored during the PCM.ReadLine command or stripped before the PCM.WriteLine command.
Thanks for whatever help you can offer.
