Epson TM-T88III Thermal Printer

P: n/a
I'm now using VB.NET to write a POS which it need to drive the epson
thermal printer. I have no problem to use the printer by using
"PrintDocument" onject provided by Vb.NET. But I think the speed for
print is too slow, anyone know how I can speed it up??

P.S. I know if I directly output some print command to the com port,
the speed will become much more faster. But because I need to use
network to share the printer ( for example 3 work station with 1
thermal printer), seems it is difficult to handle this suitation if
noe using printDocument.

Cheers
Alan

Use Win32 API for printing to the printer.

This will enhance the speed greatly. Actually what happens here is that
text is sent to the printer as clear text whereas, printdocument sends
text as graphics.

The other way to print real fast is OPOS drivers for Epson.

You can contact me if you need more information.
