    How to send control characters to CT-S310?

    Hello there,

    I realize that BPA unfortunately only support the Windows generic text only print driver, so I'm trying to figure out another way to use the printer's full capabilities to print a logo and/or coupon on the receipts.

    What files within BPA can be used to customize or insert control characters for printing. For example I know how to customize the header using the application GUI, but I don't see any options for specifying control characters to be sent to the printer.

    Also, can BPA provide an example of the format used to send control characters?

    Thanks!

    We offer a cash drawer open string as well as a receipt printer cutoff string. The length of the field is 150 characters. These get sent at the end of the print job in bpa. You can view them in the business system->definitions-> printer and forms setup.

    I believe you can also send control characters through the 'printer commands' section of the generic text only driver properties.

    Hope this helps!

    This website is a good reference table for figuring out the character codes. You just put the character code in between ( ).
