Re: Missing Information on Label After Printing

Hello! I have not had such problem with using the demo version and as far as I know there are no restriction except time :) The weird thing is that your textfields seem to cut of all around the same distance every time. I have seen Nicelabel not print an entire field (somehow when I used to many fon...

Re: Linking different MS Access tables together to show a text on the label based on product number.

Hi magnus, The main problem you have is that you don't have exact keys for you tables to easily link them. If you don't want to change your second db to also have prodcode 1 and prodcode 2 you will have to combine the 2 fields of your first db when selecting a row. We can do that :) Make 3 variables...

Re: Nice label automation file trigger

Hey Donald, Your trigger should look something like on the following screenshot. Here is a simple rundown on making a simple trigger - make you label without any connections, just variable names - make the datafilter with field names - set up your trigger - import the variables from you label using ...

Re: best practices question

I have the "luxury" of being the only one here that works with nicelabel so i don't have the problem of someone messing with my solutions. However, i always keep a development solution and a in production solution. Even if the changes are small i do them in my development solution first. I have a gl...

Re: Nice label automation file trigger

Hello mr duck ;) Based on the type of file you make a data filter first. Structured text / unstructured data. For example in structured text you give a certain location in the file (line 3 character 10 to 15) a name. When you set the data filter in your trigger you can assign these file location to ...

Re: best practices question

Hi Pascal, I had the same dilemma. We have 19 production lines that use niceform. When we were using nicelabel 6 I had a niceform for every production line. And yes if 1 little thing had to be changed all 19 forms, lots of work. Especially since we also have our product specifications / workinstruct...

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...
