Internal counters and barcodes

Post by Sliva » Fri Feb 13, 2015 12:49 pm

Hello.

I'm using Carl Valentin Vario III 107/12 and NiceLabel Pro.
I have installed the latest drivers (5.1.07.5306) and the latest version of NiceLabel Pro.

If I make a counter in text form, I can tick the option to use an internal counter (see attachment one).
However, if i make my counter in barcode form, i can't use use that option (see attachment two).

How can I fix this?

Best wishes,

Sliva

You can enable the internal counter in the barcode, if:
  • The printer supports this functionality.
  • If you use NiceLabel printer driver.
  • The counter is defined as "simple counter" - numeric only.
The option for internal counter in the barcode is not available in the wizard, but in the main barcode properties dialog box. This is a bit advanced feature after all. ;-)

Do the following:
  1. Enable the option Odpri pogovorno okno za dodatne možnosti.
  2. Click Konec.
  3. In the dialog box that will open go to Value tab.
  4. Enable the option Use the printer's internal counter. See screenshot.
    Please note, you will NOT see this option, if the above mentioned prerequisites are not met.

Hi, thanks for replying.

Let's make this clear:
- printer supports internal counters
- I am using NiceLabel driver
- I'm only using numerals in my counters

I tried your method and once again it works fine in text form.
In barcode form (code 128, counter starts and 1, just a simple counter) this pops up (see attachements).

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you for your time,

This might be caused by either of the following:
  • The printer has support for internal counters in the text objects, but NOT in the barcode objects.
  • If the printer does support for internal barcode counters, this particular NiceLabel printer driver might not support such barcode counters just yet.
I suggest that you contact your regional NiceLabel support center for clarification.
