How to format and print out a lot of strings

5 posts in this topic

How a lot of string formatted output to a printer?

E.g:

1) The first line of Arial font and size 20 and Bold

2) The second line to the fourth line of  Tahoma font and size 14

3) Insert two blank lines every 5 row

4) Every 64 rows to add a page break (chr(12) ) and add headers and footers

5) Finally, the formatted string output to a printer(Dot matrix printer)

How to do that?The printer supports ESC / P,  ESC / P2,  ESC / PK, ESC / PK2,  Epson Standard Code for Printer.

Thank you very much!!!

Use a GUI then use RichEdit there you may could make this with different Fonts~ Then u may could add the string within a Array which would be in the end written to the RichEdit. Then you could stream it to a file which is a .rtf and this can be printed in the end ;3

ioripalm,

You can format your lines and send directly to print.  A search of "rtf print" turned up several examples including this.

Formatting your print will involve reading a source (file, probably), formatting each line according to your requirements and outputting the line to a printer or file.

See what you can put together and come back for help, if needed.

Good Luck,

kylomas

I found pushing all the text into PDF is easier. Then the PDF is both portable and easy to print. See here:

      I have established how to get tomorrows date however I can't seem to figure out how to format the date into my required format of MM/DD/YYYY.  
      I have this:
      $today=_DateToDayValue(@YEAR,@MON,@MDAY) Dim $Y, $M, $D $tomorrow=_DayValueToDate($today+1, $Y, $M, $D) The _DateToDayValue seems to have a fixed format.  I've also tried a :
      $vardate = _DateAdd( 'd',1, _NowCalcDate()) with a "StringSplit" and/or StringFormat but the _NowCalcDate seems to also be fixed to a YYYY/MM/DD format.
      I'm sure I'm missing something simple but am at a loss.
      Any help would be MUCH appreciated

      Hi,
      I want to click a link by the element ID through IEGetObjById.
      <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <button type="button" id="Random-1-ID" onclick="alert('Hello world!')"></button> </body> </html> I intend to click the button with ID"Random-1-ID". But on every refresh the ID changes to next number like "Random-2-ID" "Random-3-ID"
       
      The code i which i wrote for this function is
      #include <IE.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("I:\Documents\1. Work\Automation\My codes\Collections\11. Clicking button by Value and ID\button.html") Local $oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "Random-1-ID") _IEAction($oDiv, "click") _IELoadWait($oIE) So can anyone help me to alter this code like it clicks for every ID in format "Random-%-ID"

      To get the current time stamp, I got the below code.
      #include <Date.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #RequireAdmin ; Under Vista the Windows API "SetSystemTime" may be rejected due to system security $td = _Date_Time_GetSystemTime() $td = _Date_Time_SystemTimeToDateTimeStr($td) $td = StringReplace($td, " ", "_") $td = StringReplace($td, ":", "_") MsgBox(0,"",$td) But it is not giving the date or time of the timezone where the system is there.
      Please suggestt

      I am not sure what is happing at all, unfortunatlly there is no way I can put a full running code. When I enter the first and last name it works fine, However when I get to the date of birth it puts in '19760703000000' 
       
      I can't figure out why "7/3/1976" is the value before the formant and "07031976" is after the format. 
       
      I want it to pull the value after the format. "07031976"
       
       
      $r = 1 Local $aArray = _Excel_RangeRead($oExcel, Default, Default,Default,False) For $i = 1 To UBound($aArray) - 1 ;$i =0 Start from row A $sR1 = $aArray[$i][0] ;status $sR2 = $aArray[$i][1] ;first name $sR3 = $aArray[$i][2] ;Last name $sR4 = $aArray[$i][4] ;DOB $sR5 = $aArray[$i][5] ;Email Address WinWaitActive ("[CLASS:Notepad]") ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", $sR3 & ',' & $sR2 & @CR) Sleep (2000) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1",("{TAB}")) Sleep (3000) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", $sR4 & @CR) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1",("{ENTER}")) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1",("{F12}") $r = $r + 1 If $r > $sBox Then Exit Endif Next auto it demo.xlsx - excel that I am using.
      Edit: I also want to mention I have tried
      Local $aArray = _Excel_RangeRead($oExcel, Default, Default,3) When I do this not even the name first and last name will write.
