Yes I am sending width 4.0 and height 6.0 . I opened the image in paint.net and it said the canvas size was almost twice that.

I tried most of the mapopt's after I tried the ones that made sense :/)

The ZPL to PNG conversion needs a DPMM. I'm wondering if that has something to do with it

I control the printed size using the *SIZE parameter of AFPRSC and the *MAPOPT that makes it fit - I don't have the code handy.

ImageMagick CAN adjust the size as well - haven't really tried that yet. And it can reduce the PNG to fewer colors. We're getting PNGs that are probably 32-bit - they don't need to be, but we've not done everything in that regards yet.

Vern I do use Imagemagick to convert the PNG to GIF or JPG. Both are way
too big when they print, even though I asked the labelary web service to
send me 4x6 labels.

I have to go in now and see where the image size gets messed up.

If you can only get PNGs, look at ImageMagick - Scott Klement has binaries
for all you need to do PNG to GIF conversions - I'm doing it now.

The command to do it is simple - let me know if you need it, I'll send it
here.

Jack,
What is the web service that will translate a ZPL to a GIF? I can also
get a label in a ZPL format but didn't try that because I was going to be
printing the label on a laser printer rather than thermal and I expected
PDF or PNG to work. At this point, I will do whatever it takes to get
this thing to print!

This is what we are trying to do also.

We get ZPL from Fedex though. We have a server in our building that they
provide.

I've already found some software/web service that will translate the ZPL
to a GIF

Michael,
I haven't tried that because I need to print the PDF (which is a FedEx
label) and a packing slip on the same page (we have a special type of paper
that has a peel off label on the top and a tear off packing slip at the
bottom). The label comes back from FedEx's API and we are producing the
packing slip through an external printer file. I wanted to use the AFPRSC
keyword within the same printer file that produces the packing list.

We are making this change because we currently have all of our FedEx
labels manually programmed and printed through TLAshford and are trying to
replace that with the label that comes back from the FedEx API. We were
able to do this for UPS labels because their labels come back as GIF and I
can get those to print using AFPRSC component id 22.

Another option that I have with FedEx is to have their labels returned
as PNG. I read that component id 65 is for PNG but that doesn't work for
me either.

Marianne. Have you tried using the QImgCvtImg Api to convert the PDF
to a userascii spool file?

It doesn't create pcl spool file but remains as a PDF spool file. It
appears you are using Hp printers that can handle direct PDF printers.

I have posted code on using the QImgCvtImg api.

Vern,
We are on 7.2. I am getting the PDF image back from a FedEx API then
saving it to the IFS. When I use the AFPRSC keyword to print it from the
IFS, it just prints a blank page. I really need to have it print from a
printer file so we can combine it (it is a Fedex label) with a packing
slip. It prints on a special form that has a peel-off label on the top and
the packing slip on the bottom of the same page.

I can copy the PDF from the IFS to my desktop and print it manually
from there and it looks perfect. Am I missing something on my AS400 that
will allow the printer to print the PDF with the AFPRSC keyword? We aren't
currently printing anything else (except UPS label which are .GIF) this way.

Have you been able to print PDFs from a printer file?

Thanks,
Marianne

Hi Marianne

What version of the OS are you on? It seems it must be 7.2 or above,
since your normal printing is working - HPT is taking care of you.

We've been able to get the PDF itself into a *USERASCII file using the
QImgCvtImg API - that puts raw PDF into the spooled file - works only if
your printer has a direct PDF printing module.

Are you creating the PDFs yourself or getting them from somewhere else?

I can get GIFs into a PDF using AFPSRC at 7.1 - the CPYSPLF to *STMF
and
WSCST(*PDF) does that fine, I just can't get it into true PCL.

There are a couple IBM i KB articles - there titles both begin with
"IBM Printing PDF Stream Files to an..." - one for printers that DO support
direct PDF printing, the other for printers that do NOT.

But they suggest using FTP to send the stream file to a printer file
you create, and that just doesn't fly too well for me - have to sign in and
all.

I pass my label name to GIFLBIID and the path to GIFPATH within my

that are sent back from their API)


Now I need to print PDFs the same way but only get a blank page. I
have tried component id's 25 and 49. Has anyone been able to print PDFs
this way? I need this for printing FedEx labels.

Yes that's the same issue I was having. I got around that by
converting PDF and then converting the PDF back to a userascii spool file.
I know you mentioned in another thread that it doesn't work likely because
it's a dell printer emulating Hp. So you really need to convert to pcl.
There's a thread on experts exchange if you want to read up. Go to google
and search for aix PDF to pcl.
