Ticket printer as default from SpectraStar
Posted: 03 May 2017 03:52 PM

I want to be able to press the Print button on our SpectraStar XT and have a ticket printer make a label for sending our sample to the lab for monitoring the calibration.  How can I do this?

The UScan software on the SpectraStar XT is designed with Crystal Reports, which allows for the creation of custom report templates for almost any kind of printer, including label or ticket printers.  The procedure is below:

1) Send me the model of your printer and the label size (l x w).
2) Send me a Word or other mock-up of the design for the ticket.
3) I will make you a custom report template and send it to you as a .rpt file.
4) To use this template as a standard report option, copy the .rpt file to the C:\Unity\Reports directory.  It is ready to go.
5) To use this template as the default report from the Results view:
  a) In Windows File Explore, navigate to C:\Program files\Unity Scientific\UScan\Reports\Default.  Rename default.rpt to default_orig.rpt.
  b) Copy the new .rpt file into this directory and rename it to default.rpt. 

The custom template will now be used from the Print button on the default view. 

Please send me a direct email with the information above if you would like to get this system working on your system.  I would be happy to work with you on this.

Best regards,
