USING THE RELATIVE DIRECTION ( DR ) COMMAND The Relative Direction ( DR ) command specifies the direction at which characters are drawn, relative to the scaling points of P1 and P2 settings. For more information see the PCL 5 Printer Language Technical Reference Manual. The syntax for this command is as follows. DR run,rise; or DR; PARAMETERS: Run Specifies the X-component of the label direction as a percentage of the distance between P1X and P2X. Rise Specifies the Y-component of the label direction as a percentage of the distance between P1Y and P2Y. PROGRAM: 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. PA3500,2500; Specifies absolute plotting and moves to (3500,2500). DT#,1; Defines the asterisk (#) as the label terminator, and specifies that it will not print with the "1" parameter. DR0,1;LB___1990#; Sets the label direction to print at 90 degrees, and prints "___1990". DR1,1;LB___1991#; Sets the label direction to print at 45 degrees, and prints "___1991". DR1,0;LB___1992#; Sets the label direction to print at 0 degrees, and prints "___1992". DR1,-1;LB___1993#; Changes the label direction to another 45 degree angle, (leaning the opposite way of the 1991 label). DR0,-1;LB___1994 CR#; Sets the label direction to print at another 90 degree angle, (running the opposite way from the1990 label); uses a Carriage Return (CR) to return to the previous pen location. DR-1,-1;LB___1995 CR#; Sets the label direction to print at a 225 degree angle; uses a Carriage Return (CR) to return to the previous pen location. DR-1,0;LB___1996 CR#; Sets the label direction to print at a 180 degree angle, (the label will print upside down); uses a Carriage Return (CR) to return to the previous pen location. Ec%0A Enters PCL mode. EcE Sends a reset to end the job and eject the page. Copyright Hewlett-Packard Co. 1993 The information contained herein is subject to change without notice.
