ESC code draw OVAL

ESC code draw OVAL

ESC code draw OVAL

(OP)
Good evening friends,
well to start a new legislation I can print oval shaped delivery notes for feeding.

I was doing google and found how to make rectangles, lines, circles, ..... but can not find how to do graphic OVAL.
The software only allows using ESC codes, PCL5-6, GL / 2, PJL, but no matter graphics bmp, jpg, tiff .....



Thank's

RE: ESC code draw OVAL

That is actually fairly easy in HP-GL/2.

All yo do is draw a circle, but have the unit of measure with
different values for the x and y axes. In this case you would want
the y uom to be higher than the x uom.
