Application Development Information

Application Development Information

This chapter explains how to control this printer and gives information useful for printer application development.

How to Control the Printer

The printer is controlled by the drivers or ESC/POS commands.

Driver

Printer Driver

This is an Windows driver (APD = EPSON Advanced Printer Driver) which allows you to control POS operations, such as printing logos and barcodes, controlling paper cutting function and cash drawer. See this manual for more details about the printer driver. The driver includes Status API which allows you to monitor the printer status, and to send the ESC/POS commands.

See the following manuals and sample programs provided with EPSON Advanced Printer Driver Ver.5 for further details on using the driver and how to develop an application using the Status API functions.

❏ Install Manual

❏ Printer Manual

❏ Printer Specification for TM-T20

❏ Status API Manual

UPOS

This stands for Unified Point of Service. It is the standard specification of POS market, which defines drivers for controlling POS peripheral devices in various operation environments. Using the driver, you can develop POS system efficiently because you do not need to newly create commands. The following TM-T20 drivers that conform to UPOS are provided. Use one of them in accordance with your system environment.

❏ EPSON OPOS ADK

Suitable for an application that operates the printer under 32-bit version of Windows.

❏ EPSON OPOS ADK for .NET

Suitable for an application that operates the printer under Windows .NET environment.

❏ EPSON JavaPOS ADK for Windows

Suitable for an application that operates the printer under Windows Java environment.

See the following document for the information about how to create an environment and develop an application.

* This guide describes general information on how to control printers using the OPOS ADK (in the chapter POS

Printer

and Appendix-A). It does not describe Epson's specific functions.

ESC/POS Commands

The ESC/POS command is the printer command system developed by EPSON. This allows you to directly control the all functions of the printer. Using the commands with the driver, you can use a function that is not provided by the driver.

Compared to using the drivers, using the commands is difficult because you need to have knowledge about the detailed printer specifications and how to combine the commands.

Refer to the ESC/POS Quick Reference for a simple explanation of the ESC/POS command. A detailed explanation of the ESC/POS command is included in the ESC/POS Application Programming Guide. You can obtain this guide by signing a non-disclosure agreement with Epson.

Storing Logos

!

Caution:

You cannot store UPOS SetBitmap logos and logos configured using TM-T20 Utility in the same printer.

When a SetBitmap logo is stored, it overwrites and deletes an existing TM-T20 Utility logo.

The procedure to store logos differs by your system configuration as follows.

❏ When using the Advanced Printer Driver only

Use TM-T20 Utility to store logos.

❏ When using the OPOS and Advanced Printer Driver on the same system
