Since the LX400 driver is not a NiceDriver, Pocket NiceLabel will not work. You would have to contact Primera to figure out how to send control sequences from the mobile computer to the printer.

You can send the same commands as you would see it in a JOB file, through the socket. In Watch, you would simply use a 'Run Command File' action and assign the 'DataFileName' internal variable to it instead of a specific file name. The job will be processed the same in Watch, just the interface is d...

You can try removing the margins from the printing defaults of the driver then creating your page to be a tiny bit larger than the actual document.

NiceLabel takes the driver defaults in Express when creating a new document and uses them in the initial design.

Send the label to your local support group (http://www.nicelabel.com/Contact) so they can see exactly what you have created so far. This may be an easier way to troubleshoot the issue.

The problem is that NiceForm and your other application are not integrated, so Niceform has no feedback to tell it when to continue. If there is a programmer's interface in your application, you may be able to write a VB script that is executed after your "Open..." Action that allows the script to b...

If you create a date variable and place it on your label design in NL Pro as an object, a calendar object will be created in NiceForm automatically when you generate your form through the New Form from Label wizard.

You may want to email the label format to your local NiceLabel support group (listed on NiceLabel.com) for review. If the local office can sent the label to a Datamax printer and have aligned printing, there may be a hard setting on the printer that needs to be changed that the label job cannot over...

Unfortunately no. There is only one spot to include an x/y gap adjustment. This will be applied to all gaps.

This is set in the label design. In the File|Label Setup menu, go to the Cutter Setting tab. In here, select the checkbox for 'Enable Cutter'. Set the parameter for cutting interval to 'After the last printed label'. Since you are using the Session commands in your code, this should generate a singl...

Easier method. From the data, it looks like you are trying to create an AIAG label. NiceLabel Pro has a data source available called ASC(FACT). This allows you to use a single variable, lets say PartNumber for your barcode and human readable, but only add the P in the barcode. Look in the NiceLabel ...

The use of the RTF object and specifying multiline in your variable may be stepping on each other. Try one or the other. If you use the RTF object, make sure your variable has enough of a length to accept all characters, but uncheck multiline in the variable definition. If you use multiline in the v...
