Scan Barcode, then Print Labels, Receipts and More

A 25-Device Plan is required to use this feature. Contact support@codereadr.com.

Print Button

If a Service is configured for printing, a “PRINT” button shows up on the app’s response screen after a scan.

  • If you only want to print the value scanned (shown here as “88916342277”), then an associated database with structured response text is not necessary.
  • If you want to print other variables, they must be within a structured text string uploaded to an associated database on codeREADr.com.
    • The example below shows the following string in the response text: {“_comp_price_”:”110.50″,”_our_price_”:”100.99″,”_barcode_”:”9038748″}.
    • In the ZPL, the variables will be “_comp_price_”, “_our_price_”, “and “_barcode_”.
    • When the app user taps the PRINT button, the printer will print a label, receipt, etc. with “110.50”, “100.99” and “9038748” in the locations specified by the ZPL. Notice here the barcode value is different than the barcode value scanned. That’s to show that you can over-ride the scanned value if that suits your needs – for example, scanning a UPC code but printing the SKU barcode instead.

Setup Print Option

Currently the Service must be set up as a Validate Scans service type. The database associated with that service should contain the “variable” data to be printed.  On the Advanced step when creating your Service you will see “Enable PRINT Option”.

Enable print option

There you will need to enter our print script with your ZPL file configured for printing the label or receipt. If you need assistance please contact support@codereadr.com.

Mobi Print App

To use the codeREADr mobile app’s PRINT feature you will need to also have the Mobi Print app installed on your iOS or Android OS device. It runs in the background once set up.

For iOS, please use regular Mobi Print app:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mobi-print-scan/id701088704?mt=8

For Android, use Mobi Print Pro:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.arrowhead.mobiprintpro.android&hl=en_US

You can use the same account for both applications. There is a 15 print trial. If you contact support@codereadr.com we can introduce you to the Mobi Print team for help with your ZPL. Note: We are not affiliated with Mobi Print but refer clients to them for their print expertise and because they also sell the printers and other enterprise hardware (scanners, etc.).

Here are some basic instructions on pairing the Mobi Print app.
