Events

This section explains how to capture and trigger internal events in the printer. Here’s a quick list of these commands:
Available Events
A table that correlates a ZBI event with an identification number.
ZBI Key Names
Details the names of each printer’s front panel buttons, ZBI names, and ZBI event ID.
REGISTEREVENT
Sets up the
HANDLEEVENT
function to receive notification when the specified event has occurred.
UNREGISTEREVENT
Allows events that are currently set to be captured by the program to no longer be captured.
HANDLEEVENT
Once events have been registered, this function is used to see what events have occurred.
TRIGGEREVENT
Allows for front panel buttons to be triggered programatically.
There are certain events in the printer that a ZBI 2.0 program can receive. To do this, the program first registers for the event. On a regular basis, call a function to handle events. When an event occurs that the program is registered for, the function will return the event’s identification number.
