Not seeing XML variables in Nicelabel generated prn file

Post by satoshi » Mon Mar 29, 2021 1:17 pm

I tried following this guide to create a label in Nicelabel (PowerForms 2019), store it on our Sato CL4Nx and then get the XML so we can use it in our own software:

https://www.sato-global.com/files/Integ ... uide_4.pdf

The label looks good, contains multiple variables in Nicelabel and i can store it on the Sato.
However when i try to print to file to get the XML, when i open the PRN file, there are no variables under the label tag:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE labels SYSTEM "label.dtd">
<labels _FORMAT="001" _QUANTITY="1" _PRINTERNAME="Printer 1" _JOBNAME="Label">
    <label>
    </label>
</labels>
When i try to send this XML to the Sato via TCP/IP, it does print a label but i can't add the variables.

See attachment for the variables as listed in Nicelabel.

Am i missing some option that's required to add them to the XML?
