All provided demo files can be found in the TestFiles folder of the W-ELP Install Folder (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\WELP\TestFiles). They can be loaded end edited into any enhanced ASCII editor like Notepad++. However, as the file contains PCL5 Printer Commands, they CANNOT be printed from of a Windows application. They need to be sent directly to the printer or to a printer queue! The Install Tab and the Configuration Tab do offer a way to test and reprint captured data streams.
|A_SIMPLE_ELP_TEST.PCL||This is usually the file for testing, If a queue was successfully activated. If the printed document shows bar codes then everything is fine.|
|Barcode_1D.pcl||Contains a huge list of 1D bar code samples.|
|Barcode_2D.pcl||Same as before but now 2D bar codes.|
|Barcode_Kyocera.pcl||Shows how to use bar codes from Prescribe using the BARC command - note that the Emulation has to be enabled!|
|Barcode_Overview.pcl||Prints samples of bar codes and explains how they can be setup and configured.|
|Barcode_QR_GS1.pcl||Usage of the GS1 variant of the QR bar code.|
|chinese_traditional.pcl¹||Demo page printing traditional Chinese characters in double byte mode.|
|chineseSimplified_Korean.pcl¹||Demo page printing simplified Chinese and Korean characters in double byte mode.|
|CMC7.pcl||Sample of all implemented characters of the CMC7 font.|
|ELPStatusPage.pcl||Prints a ELP Demo Page and gives some information about error logging.|
|imb_test.pcl||Sample usage of the US Intelligent Mail bar code (IMb).|
|Input_tray_test.pcl||Helps to determine the PCL input tray number of a printer.|
|INVOICE.pcl||Prints en example of how invoices can be duplicate with watermarks etc.|
|LetterHead.pcl||This Demo Page demonstrates how to print automatically forms, using ELP command in the data stream|
|Output_tray_test.pcl||Helps to determine the PCL output tray number of a printer.|
|PCL_MacroCall.pcl||This Demo demonstrates how ELP can replace a printer Flash Memory or hard disk for forms and/or font management, right away, without any changes to the PCL macro commands.|
|SAP_Unicode.pcl||Unicode SAP Test file.|
|Trigger.pcl||This example demonstrates how to print automatically forms, using an ELP_Command, which is triggered by some information found in the data stream.|
|Unicode_Internal_Fonts.pcl¹||Print samples of fonts build into the printers in quite a number of languages.|
¹ Needs to have the ELP Unicode fonts installed, mainly used for SAP international printing
Hint: Capturing data streams for testing and reprinting can be done using the debug functions of W-ELP and is described in the chapter Need help? It is suggested for implementers to copy the captured files, or spool files out of the windows\system32\spooler\printers directory in the W-ELP directory for 2 reasons:
You have comparable print files, which just may help in the future if suddenly something does not work, and you can prove that the system was changed.
You can use this test function for fast reprinting without the need of an Admin or User.
In the Workpath folder (default: c:\ProgramData\Welp) several .ini files can be found, they provide examples for:
Example how to print on every printed page the proper watermark / company letter head etc. depending upon page size and orientation. The forms must be generated and are not part of the demo.
|Example.ini||Configuration file for some provided examples.|
|Invoice.ini||Configuration file for some provided examples.|
|Trigger.ini||Configuration file for some provided examples.|
Note: A blank "factory shipped" convert.ini file is located as a copy in the folder c:\ProgramData\Welp named convert.ori
