Raw Data Printer Overview
Send Raw Data And Native Printer Commands To Any Printer, From Any Programming Language
Using Just a Single Line of Code!... And Without Using Any Printer Drivers!
Raw Data Printer is an intelligent ActiveX component (DLL) specifically designed for sending raw data to any type of printers, including label printers, ticket printers, RFID printers, barcode printers and cash registers. It enables you to print raw data and send native printer commands (escape codes) directly to the printer, bypassing any printer drivers. You do not even need to have a printer driver installed on the system that communicates with the printer! And all this, is done using just a single line of code! No more pain with writing complex code or using special printer drivers to manipulate your printers to print raw data!
Raw Data Printer is a unique component that enables you to control the entire range of printer functions directly from within your code by sending native printer commands (escape codes or any other commands) in any printer command language (e.g. standard ESC commands, ZPL commands, PCL commands, etc.). Moreover, it supports any custom printer commands not defined in any common printer command languages.
Another great and unique feature of Raw Data Printer is its ability to send your data and commands to any printer installed on your machine, including any of your network printers. You just need to specify the printer name in a method argument when sending your data, and your data will be sent on-the-fly to that printer!
Raw Data Printer will also work with any normal printer (e.g. laser printers, inkjet printers, etc.) and it supports both local printers as well as network printers. Local printers are supported on any port (COM ports, Parallel ports, USB ports, Firewire ports, etc.)
Using Raw Data Printer is quite simple. It provides you with a few easy-to-use methods, where you just need to specify your data (and / or printer commands), or a file name and, optionally a printer name, and your data will be printed using just a single line of code! It can't be easier when sending raw data and commands to your printers!
Raw Data Printer can be used from any programming language that support ActiveX components (COM), such as VB (Visual Basic), VBA, VB.NET, C#.NET, VC++.NET, ASP (Active Server Pages), ASP.NET, HTML, MS Office (Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint), VC++, Delphi, etc.
