^A@
^A@

^A@

The
^A@
command uses the complete name of a font, rather than the character designation used in
^A
. Once a value for
^A@
is defined, it represents that font until a new font name is specified by
^A@
.

Use Font Name to Call Font

Format:
^A@o,h,w,d:f.x
Parameter
Details
o =
field orientation
Values:
N =
normal
R =
rotates 90 degrees (clockwise)
I =
inverted 180 degrees
B =
read from bottom up, 270 degrees
Default:
N
or the last
^FW
value
h =
character height (in dots)
Default:
Specifies magnification by
w
(character width) or the last accepted
^CF
value. Uses the base height if none is specified.
  • Scalable - The value is the height in dots of the entire character block. Magnification factors are unnecessary, because characters are scaled.
  • Bitmapped - The value is rounded to the nearest integer multiple of the font’s base height, then divided by the font’s base height to give a magnification nearest limit.
w =
width (in dots)
Default:
Specifies magnification by
h
(height) or the last accepted
^CF
value. Specifies the base width is used if none is specified.
  • Scalable -  The value is the width in dots of the entire character block. Magnification factors are unnecessary, because characters are scaled.
  • Bitmapped - The value rounds to the nearest integer multiple of the font’s base width, then divided by the font’s base width to give a magnification nearest limit.
d =
drive location of font
Values:
R:
,
E:
,
B:
, and
A:
Default:
R
:
f =
font name
Values:
any valid font
Default:
if an invalid or no name is entered, the default set by
^CF
is used If no font has been specified in
^CF
, font A is used.
The font named carries over on all subsequent
^A@
commands without a font name.
x =
extension
.TTE
is only supported in firmware version V60.14.x, V50.14.x, or later.
Values:
.FNT
= font
.TTF =
TrueType Font
.TTE =
TrueType Extension
Example:
This example identifies the purpose of each line of code for this label:
1
Starts the label format.
2
Searches non-volatile printer memory (
B:
) for
CYRI_UB.FNT
. When the font is found, the
^A@
command sets the print orientation to normal and the character size to 50 dots by 50 dots.
3
Sets the field origin at 100,100.
4
Prints the field data,
Zebra Printer Fonts
on the label.
5
Calls the font again and character size is decreased to 40 dots by 40 dots.
6
Sets the new field origin at 100,150.
7
Prints the field data,
This uses the B:CYRI_UB.FNT
on the label.
8
Ends the label format.
