Printer Memory Management and Related Status Reports

To help you manage printer resources, your printer supports a variety of format commands.
Use these commands to:
  • manage memory
  • transfer objects (between memory areas, import and export)
  • name objects
  • output various printer operating status reports
These commands are very similar to the old DOS commands such as
DIR
(directory listing) and
DEL
(delete file). The most common reports are also part of the Zebra Setup Utility and ZebraDesigner Windows driver.
It is recommended you issue a single command within this type of format (form) for ease of reuse as a maintenance and development tool.
^XA
Start Format Command
A single formal command for ease of reuse.
^XZ
End Format Command
Many of the commands that transfer objects, and manage/report on memory are control commands (
~
). They need not be within a format (form). They will be processed immediately after they are received by the printer, whether in a format (form) or not.
