device.frontpanel.line1

This command overrides the content that is shown on the first line of the front panel when the printer is showing the idle display. Use of the
getvar
function is dependent on first using the
setvar
function. For example, to have the first line of the idle display to show HELLO, you must first send a
setvar
command; then a
getvar
command can be sent to retrieve the value HELLO.
