Labels - continue on next label RRS feed

  • User1132874722 posted

    Hi guys,

    I've been trying and trying to find an answer to this to no avail. Here's a quick overview of we need:

    Background information

    • We use the system to generate labels containing certain information, and sometimes with very large fonts (55 pt).
    • The information that will appear on a label will come from an SQL database.
    • Information that will appear on the labels are shipping addresses (shipper, destination), the content of the package, tracking numbers, etc..

    Here's my main challenge. Quite often, especially if the customer chooses a large font size, the information will not all fit on a single label. What I need is to have the text continue on the next label. Is there a way to do so?

    Preferred methods involving setting the font size for the label output regardless of what the customer would have entered. Your only real issue is of the character count goes over the display limit you have set for the width of the label.

    So if Company Name can support 150 characters at 12pt font, you can use a java script character counter during input to show how many characters the user has entered after each key stroke.

    If the font sizes are practical then you could change from a label to a multi-line text box and allow the text to auto wrap as it gets larger and longer. This would move things down the label based on width set.
