USING THE FILL TYPE COMMAND This command selects the shading pattern used to fill polygons ( FP ), rectangles ( RA or RR ), wedges ( WG ), or characters ( CF ). The Fill Type command ( FT ), can use solid, shading, parallel lines (hatching), cross hatching, patterned (raster) fill, or PCL user- defined patterns. For more information see the PCL 5 Printer Language Technical Reference Manual. The syntax for this command is as follows: FT fill type,[option1,[option2]]; or FT; LEGEND: Ec = [Ctrl] [P] [Esc] in DOS EDIT. EcE Resets the printer. Ec%0B Enters HP-GL/2 mode. IN; Initializes HP-GL/2 mode. SP1; Selects pen number 1, (black). Even though there is no physical pen, the SP command must be used to enable printing. PA2000,2000; Specifies absolute plotting and moves to location (2000,2000). FT;RR2500,300;ER2500,300; Selects the default fill type (solid black); fills a rectangle using solid black fill, with the lower left corner being the current pen location and the upper right corner a point 2500 plotter units (plu) to the right and 300 plu up. Edges the rectangle just filled. PR0,300;FT3,80,30;RR2500,300; Specifies relative plotting and moves the pen up 300 plu; selects fill type number 3 (parallel lines), with 80 plu between each line, with each line tipped 30 degrees. The RR command fills the rectangle with the fill type just specified, using the current pen location as the lower left corner, and a point 2500 X-units and 300 Y-units away as the upper right corner. PR0,300;FT10,36;RR2500,300 ER2500,300; Moves the pen position up 300 plu and specifies the fill type as 36% shading; fills a rectangle with that fill type, with the lower left corner being the current pen location and the upper right corner 2500 plu to the right and 300 plu up from there. The ER command edges the rectangle just filled. Ec%0A Enters the PCL mode. EcE Sends a reset to end the job and eject the page.
