device.cpcl_synchronous_mode

This command enables/disables CPCL synchronous mode. When the printer is in sync mode, parsing will "lock" while printing is going on, allowing behavior similar to that of the legacy SH3 mobile printers.

Setvar

To turn on or off the
device.cpcl_synchronous_mode
:
! U1 setvar "device.cpcl_synchronous_mode" "value"
Values
  • "on"
    puts the printer in CPCL synchronous mode
  • "off"
    puts the printer in default mode
Default
"off"

Getvar

To return the current value of the setting:
! U1 getvar "device.cpcl_synchronous_mode"
Example
Consider issuing a label immediately followed by an SGD request. When sync mode is
"off"
, the SGD will be returned nearly immediately after submitting the label. When sync mode is
"on"
, the SGD will be returned after the label has printed.
! U1 setvar "device.cpcl_synchronous_mode" "on"
! U1 setvar "device.cpcl_synchronous_mode" "off"
