Need advice on Epson receipt printers
April 03, 2008 03:16PM
for a POS application I need to print to receipt printers, like Epson TM series.
I know I cannot use the windev report editor (well, I can, but then printing will be very slow, while every thing is printed in a graphical way).
Can I use iPrint-command instead? Or do I need to send ESCape code?
Let's say I want to select "FontA11", which is an internal font. How do I do that?

Hi Arie,

make the EPSON to the standard printer. After start Windev new, you can select all fonts from the EPSON.

Thanks Christoph, I didn't know this "Windows" trick.

Now I'm able to print at full speed using iCreateFont("FontA11").

That leads me to the next question: I want to get those fonts at runtime, so users can select one. However FontList() or the FontSelect() dialog or the iSelectFont() dialog do not show these printer fonts. Just the computer fonts are visible.
Any tips about that?
