Transparency Mode

Entire Connection supports two independent methods to transfer transparent data from the host application to the printer:

  • You can combine two printable characters to one printer control character (only supported for the print destination Printer).

  • You can use a SCS control character. This does not depend on the specified print destination. Each transparency block must consist of 2 bytes of header information and a data block of at least one byte. The second byte of the header shows the number of transparent data bytes carried in this block. In transparency mode, SCS control characters within a transparency block are ignored. The figure below shows how Entire Connection expects the data structure to print in this transparency mode.
