DRAWING RECTANGLES IN PCL5

         LEGEND:  Ec = [Ctrl] [P] [Esc] in DOS EDIT
    
     This example shows how to create a rectangle, and a
     fill pattern in PCL. Then it explains how to put them
     together, making a filled rectangle with solid sides.
     This example is listed in three parts, but will all
     print on a single page showing each part of the
     rectangle. First it shows how to draw a box, second it
     shows how to shade a rectangular area, lastly it shows
     how to fill a box with a shading pattern.

DRAW THE TOP BOX

     This portion of the sequence shows how to draw a
     rectangle using other rectangles as sides. This will
     make the sides of the rectangle black. Remember if you
     use this example by itself, you must send the command
     to exit out of HP-GL/2 mode and reset the printer to
     eject the page.
     
     EcE                           Resets the printer.
     
     Ec*p900x600Y                  Moves the cursor 900 dots
                                   (3 inches at 300 dpi) in
                                   from the left margin, and
                                   600 dots (2 inches at 300
                                   dpi) down from the top
                                   margin.
     
     Ec*c600a6b0P                  Using the print model
                                   commands for rectangle
                                   dimensions, "600a"
                                   specifies a rectangle
                                   with a horizontal size or
                                   width of 600 dots, and
                                   "6b" specifies a vertical
                                   size or height of 6 dots.
                                   The 0P selects the solid
                                   black rectangular area
                                   fill.
     
     Ec*c6a600b0P                  Specifies a rectangle
                                   with width of 6 dots,
                                   height of 600 dots, and a
                                   fill pattern of solid
                                   black.
     
     Ec*p900x1200Y                 Moves the current cursor
                                   position to 900 dots,
                                   from the left margin and
                                   1200 dots down from the
                                   top margin.
     
     Ec*c606a6b0P                  Specifies a rectangle
                                   with a width of 606 dots,
                                   a height of 6 dots and a
                                   fill pattern of solid
                                   black.
     
     Ec*p1500x600Y                 Moves the current cursor
                                   position to 1500 dots
                                   from the left margin and
                                   600 dots down from the
                                   top margin.
     
     Ec*c6a600b0P                  Specifies a rectangle
                                   with a width of 6 dots, a
                                   height of 600 dots and a
                                   fill pattern of solid
                                   black.

DRAW THE SHADING

     This portion shows how to select a shading pattern for
     the rectangle. If shading is done by itself the sides
     of the rectangle will appear with the same fill pattern
     as the one used to fill it. If this example is used
     alone, the commands to enter HP-GL/2 mode must be used
     to toggle the printer into HP-GL/2 mode, also remember
     to send the command to exit out of HP-GL/2 mode and
     eject the page with a printer reset.
     
     Ec*p900x1350Y                 Moves the cursor 900 dots
                                   from the left margin and
                                   1350 dots down from the
                                   top margin.
     
     Ec*t300R                      Sets the raster
                                   resolution to 300 dpi.
     
     Ec*c15G                       Sets the shading of the
                                   rectangular area fill to
                                   15 percent.
     
     Ec*c600a600b2P                Specifies a rectangle
                                   with a width of 600 dots,
                                   a height of 600 dots and
                                   a shaded fill pattern,
                                   using a specific shading
                                   pattern, which was
                                   specified above with the
                                   "Ec*c15G" command.

BRING THE TWO RECTANGLES TOGETHER
     
     The following sequence can be used by itself to perform
     the two parts listed above. This can be used as a
     complete example of a rectangle with shaded fill
     pattern. If this example is used alone, the commands to
     enter HP-GL/2 mode must be used, to toggle the printer
     into HP-GL/2 mode.
     
     Ec*p900x2100Y                 Moves the cursor 900 dots
                                   from the left margin and
                                   2100 dots from the top
                                   margin.
     
     Ec*c600a6b0P                  Specifies a rectangle
                                   with a width of 600 dots
                                   and a height of 6 dots
                                   and a fill pattern of
                                   black.
     
     Ec*c6a600b0P                  Specifies a rectangle
                                   with a width of 6 dots
                                   and a height of 600 dots
                                   and a fill pattern of
                                   black.
     
     Ec*p900x2700Y                 Moves the cursor 900 dots
                                   from the left margin and
                                   2700 dots from the top
                                   margin.
     
     Ec*c606a6b0P                  Specifies a rectangle
                                   with a width of 606 dots,
                                   a height of 6 dots and a
                                   fill pattern of black.
     
     Ec*p1500x2100Y                Moves the cursor 1500
                                   dots in from the left
                                   margin and 2100 dots down
                                   from the top margin.
     
     Ec*c6a600b0P                  Specifies a rectangle
                                   with a width of 6 dots, a
                                   height of 600 dots and a
                                   fill pattern of black.
     
     Ec*p900x2100Y                 Moves the cursor 900 dots
                                   form the left margin and
                                   2100 dots down from the
                                   top margin.
     
     Ec*t300R                      Sets the raster
                                   resolution to 300 dpi.
                                   (This command is only
                                   needed if this last
                                   section is used alone.
                                   The raster resolution for
                                   this plot was already
                                   selected in the section
                                   above.)
     
     Ec*c15G                       Sets the shading of the
                                   rectangular area fill to
                                   15 percent. (This command
                                   is only needed if this
                                   last section is used
                                   alone. The fill pattern
                                   was set in the section
                                   above.)
     
     
     Ec*c600a600b2P                Specifies a rectangle
                                   with a width of 600 dots,
                                   a height of 600 dots and
                                   a fill pattern using
                                   shading.
     
     EcE                           Resets the printer to end
                                   the job and eject the
                                   page.
     
          Note:  When using the last section
                 alone, "Bringing the two
                 rectangles together," you must
                 also add the commands that
                 specify the raster resolution
                 and the percentage of shading
                 before using this last command
                 for the fill pattern shading.
