device.frontpanel.line2

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