Are you looking to integrate label printing or ID card printing into your current system? That's what you get with the command-line-interface from Jolly Technologies. Using the command-line-interface, your system can send the pertinent information and have your customized labels or ID cards print automatically as part of your existing workflow.
You still get the full features of Label Flow’s and ID Flow’s design tools, the same easy-to-use interface for designing your custom labels, but the ability to automatically send your print commands directly from your current system. Design your labels with barcodes, QR Codes, or even product photos and custom logos while integrating directly with your existing processes to print your custom label designs as you need them automatically.
Download a trial of our design software to see for yourself just how easy it is to create the labels you need, professionally, and quickly with Label Flow by Jolly Technologies.
Print RFID Tags, Barcode Labels and ID Cards From Your Application
Print RFID tags, barcode labels and ID cards from your Windows or Web-based application using the Command Line Interface. Simply design an ID card or label using ID Flow™ ID card software or Label Flow™ barcode software, then call the Jolly command line utility from your application to print in the background. No user interaction required.
When you print cards or labels from your application using the Command Line Interface, your users don't even need to know that the Command Line Interface is printing. Transparent integration means cards and labels will print in the background with no required user interaction.
Web-based XML Integration
Interfacing with your web application is easy with the Command Line Interface. Options and data can be passed via XML from your web application. The Command Line Interface will parse the XML data and print ID cards or labels using the specified options and data. The Command Line Interface will also accept XML data from traditional Windows applications.
How Integration Works
Public Sub printCard(ByVal user_id As String, ByVal num_copies As String, ByVal printer_name As String)
Dim proc_id As Integer
Dim command As String
Dim program_location As String
Dim filter_statement As String
Dim design_file As String
' Set program location
program_location = """C:\Program Files\Jolly Technologies\ID Flow\CommandLine.exe"""
' Set number of copies
num_copies = """" & num_copies & """"
' Set printer name
printer_name = """" & printer_name & """"
' Select the requested user record from the database that was configured at design-time
filter_statement = """`UserID`=" & user_id & """"
' Set design file
design_file = """C:\card_design.jps"""
' Build the command line
command = program_location & " /copies " & num_copies
command = command & " /printer " & printer_name
command = command & " /filter " & filter_statement
command = command & " " & design_file
' Start the CommandLine application, and store the process id
proc_id = Shell(command, AppWinStyle.MaximizedFocus)
Print pre-designed cards (or cards)
The Command Line Interface can print any cards (or labels) that were designed using ID Flow (or Label Flow).
Many of the options available in ID Flow (or Label Flow) are can be passed as parameters to the Command Line Interface including:
Printing variable data is easy
There are three ways to pass variable data using the Command Line Interface.
Full scripting support
The Command Line Interface is fully scriptable and you pass batch files to run sequences of commands for printing multiple groups of cards (or labels).
The details of each action can be logged in a detailed log file.
Simplify User Interaction
The Command Line Interface can also be an ideal solution for novice users. For example, a shortcut to the command line interface can be created on the desktop, that when clicked, prints a set of cards (or labels), making card (or label) printing as simple as double-clicking on an icon.
