Smart form rotate 90 degrees with Zebra printer

Hi Experts,

We are using smart form to design label which need be printed by Zebra printer, and the label need be printed in landscape. Currently we are using the Zebra command '^FWR' in smartform to rotate the field in each window, but the rotated format is very strange. Can anyone let me know how the rotate command work?

It would be highly appreicated if an rotate example can be provided.

Many thanks.

Benny.

    The Zebra command ^FWR rotates each individual field by 90 degrees (clockwise). But then you'll have to adjust position of each field again for landscape output.

    In ZPL II printer language is no command for rotating label by 90 degrees. The printer driver doesn't understand "orientation=LANDSCAPE".

    A slightly better solution could be to define a smartform with portrait orientation. Add a "command node" in first window and enter attribute name "S_LZPL_SETUP" with value '^FWR'.

    Please note that this command doesn't has an effect on barcodes. They have their own parameters for rotation. Please define these parameters in SE73 for each barcode type your're using.
