Working with Hex Graphic Images

ZPL II can be used to save graphic images in HEX format in DRAM, FLASH, or PCMCIA, depending on the type of memory installed in your printer.
ZPL II can be used to save graphic images in HEX format in DRAM, FLASH, PCMCIA, or battery backed up SRAM, depending on the type of memory installed in your printer. The image might be created using a CAD program, a draw or paint program, or a scanner. These images can then be printed on the label. Graphic images may be created using a program that creates files in the .PCX format. These files must then be converted to ZPL II graphic format .GRF (pure hexadecimal data without headers or other extraneous information) for use as part of a label format.
You can use ZebraDesigner or ZebraNet Bridge Enterprise to convert the .PCX graphic format into the pure hexadecimal .GRF graphic format. Hexadecimal data may also be directly input as part of a ZPL II program. Manually preparing a string of HEX code is possible but usually impractical.
