ZPL Center Align

ZPL Center Align

(OP)
Hi all,

New user of ZPL II with the Zebra TLP 2844-Z; I haven't been able to find a good way to have a text field centered in the label.  I've written a web application (for a kiosk) that takes data and sends it directly to the 2844 via the Generic Text Driver - that text field is going to be different every time (it represents a user's name), and so I was wondering if there is a way in ZPL to take that data and center it on the label.

Any help is appreciated greatly.  Thanks.

Bachya,

I was wondering if you got an answer to this? I'm having the same problem...

RE: ZPL Center Align

The Field Block command (^FB) might work. This has a center justification option.

RE: ZPL Center Align

Put in leading spaces programmatically to simulate centering.
