Re: Dyanmic date formatting

Ah I see...

To the best of my knowledge you will have to indicate what the input format is and create a mapping script accordingly.
I don't think Nicelabel can by itself determine whether 02-01-20 means 02 Jan 20 or 01 Feb 20 or 20 jan 02 etc.

Re: Barcode printing issue

Hello Joe,

Did you make the label specific for this printer?
Difference in DPI can unwantedly scale a barcode when printing.

Otherwise did you preview it with the same data as what you are sending to your printer?
This can also scale your barcode.

Hope it helps

Re: Printing Data from the Form / Database collection

Hello, yes this is possible :) First of all I would make a view of your database for the combo box list. Attach the view or entire database to your solution. Use the database field you want as the item source for you combo box. Next choose a source variable. When you select something in your combo b...

Re: Update preview after scan

Made a "dirty" work around for it. Programmed the scanner so it sends a <tab> after the scan. Made another editfield (hidden behind the actual input field) and have set this new field after the original input field in the tab order. Last I set an on focus-event on the new field with move focus back ...

Re: Data matrix code

Hello, Does your printer know the barcode type your using? i.e. does it have the font to print the barcode? If you are not sure try printing it with that print barcode as graphic option that is right there in your screen shot ;) If it prints, update the barcode fonts in your printer. (In my opinion ...

Re: Update preview after scan

True, but then I would still need to exit the editfield after the scan to 'update' the variable.
This is what I am trying to prevent.
No interaction with the screen, just the scan input with a scanner
This is why I decided to go with the change on the editfield option.

Update preview after scan

Hello, I'm working on a simple form (Niceform 2019.2) for a secondary label check. We do this check by scanning the barcode on the label and the form shows what other labels should have been used on the product (since we have over 2000 labels combination mistakes are made and thus we have a second p...

Re: Switch between functions for label field

i think I would use the 2 different time functions and save the result in separate variables; ExpDateMoths, ExpDateDays. On the label I would put a different variable; ExpDateOnLabel. If you want to show the label with the correct ExpDate as a preview on a form I would put a script in your load prod...

Re: Time field only prints start time on label instead of time label printed

Hi, The time you print seems to be static in your print job; i.e. the system time is used on the time of printing. At this time 1 job is made and that is printed multiple time without time updates. Are you using the Nicelabel driver for your printer and is the label specifically made for this type o...

Re: Printer feeds empty label

ahaaa, that makes sense :)

Might be a good idea to consider asking your label supplier to put square black backmarkers on the backpaper.
This way the printer will see it as if it is a square label.

Re: Printer feeds empty label

Hello Manuel, I have had this problem with several different causes as well. First thing I always check is my label file, is it made for the printer you are sending it to and is your paper size correct. I usually set this to manual and put the size of the label hard for this layout. For instance if ...

Re: Refreshing Variable for a timed event

Hi PVlabel, In Nicelabel variables are static so you have to update them. Can you tell how and where you update your variables? I assume you do something like the following: On form event every xxx miliseconds if (offset(now, lastPrinttime) < 2) then Popup On print event set variable lastPrinttime= ...

Re: GS1-128 Format trimming Leading Zeros

Sounds like you have put your variable as a floating point (number). Leading zeros are removed then. Try setting your variable to alphanumeric (text).

Re: If Then control in item Action

Just to add to what Mytch said,
the group option is perfect to make this readable and easy to maintain. Also you only need to put the conditions once.
See below an example how I use these as my if-statements.
