Differences in nicelabel 2017 compared with nicelabel 6 nicelabel gas dryer vs electric dryer


NiceLabel 2017 is the next-generation of NiceLabel software; built from the ground up on a .NET platform. NiceLabel 2017 inherits a lot of the concepts and functionality from the NiceLabel 6 software, but is based on new technology. As such, some of the functionality that was available in NiceLabel 6 is either offered differently or no longer available. While NiceLabel 2017 remains highly compatible with the previous version of NiceLabel, there are differences in the product lines which are the result of platform and software components and product management decisions on.

• Print history logging and label reprinting – Logging of printing events to a consolidated central database is available in LMS editions and accessible via Control Center web user interface. Labels retrieved from printing history can be reprinted on systems running the Automation module. Local printing log and label reprinting are no longer available.

• ActiveX API – ActiveX API is no longer available and is superseded by the new .NET API available in PowerForms Suite and LMS editions. The new .NET based API incorporates modern programming concepts and is superior in terms of performance and reliability. electricity trading hubs Applications using the ActiveX API will need to be adapted in order to make them compatible with the new API. See the .NET API User Guide for more.

• Desktop Applications – Set of NiceLabel 2017 desktop applications has been significantly simplified. Many applications have been consolidated into new applications while others have been discontinued. NiceLabel Pro and NiceForm have been merged into NiceLabel Designer which now supports both – label and form (solution) designing. NiceLabel Print and QuickPrint have been merged into NiceLabel Print. NiceData has been discontinued as modern database and spreadsheet formats do not require a 3rd party content editing utility. NicePrint Queue has been discontinued – this functionality is available as part of Control Center for LMS users. The Download to printer functionality of NiceMemMaster is available with NiceLabel drivers V6 and above. Smart Keyboard Downloader utility has been discontinued.

This section lists the differences and currently non-supported functionalities in NiceLabel 2017. When opening or importing a NiceLabel 6 .LBL file to a NiceLabel 2017 .NLBL or .NSLN file which uses these features, the system informs you about incompatibility issues. These functionalities are ignored. Further releases of NiceLabel 2017 might re-introduce some of the below listed functionalities. Objects and properties

• Size of PDF-417 barcode. When opening a PDF-417 2D barcode in NiceLabel 2017, the aspect ratio is adjusted to a value of at least 1.5 in order to ensure standard compliance. Also, after designing a PDF-417 barcode with value for the rows and columns set to 0, NiceLabel 2017 can display the barcode with a slightly different size or ratio. The data itself remains encoded correctly, but you will have to make sure the barcode still fits on the label. gas in babies at night Barcode placement can be verified using the label preview.

• QR Code displays the error message "Contents of item cannot be set, because its value is invalid. Value to encode is too long. Either update the content or barcode properties to allow more content" during printing. This error might appear when you try to print a label which was created in NiceLabel 6 and contains a QR Code with invalid properties. In NiceLabel 6, in certain scenarios, the designer allowed you to define invalid content for the selected type of QR Code. la gasolina cancion NiceLabel 2017 loads such label and recognizes the incompatibility during printing. You have to verify the settings of the erroneous barcode object.

• Rotating the object with enabled fill option also rotates the fill itself. When rotating the object with enabled fill option in NiceLabel 6, only the object was rotated, while the fill retained its absolute orientation relative to the label). In NiceLabel 2017, rotating the object also rotates the fill effect – fill settings are retained relative to the object.

• Global variables. NiceLabel 2017 uses a new folder (normally C:\ProgramData\NiceLabel\Global Variables) or Control Center’s database for LMS users to store the global variables. If you want to use the global variables from NiceLabel 6, you have to copy the variables from NiceLabel 6 location to the new location. Global variables with counter rollover settings are not supported – the setting is ignored.

• Custom check digit algorithms are not available. The custom check digit functionality from NiceLabel 6 (the definition of check digit algorithms and the action to execute the algorithm) cannot be used in NiceLabel 2017. This was not a frequently used functionality. The alternative is to code a custom check digit algorithm using VBScript or Python.

• Non-supported "label" API object in scripting. This part of the ActiveX API was previously also accessible from the label itself. This object was frequently used to set the conditional visibility of objects and to set the values of other label variables. NiceLabel 2017 allows direct defining of conditional visibility separately for each object in the design area. gas news australia To set the label values of other variables, PowerForms application can easily be created for such task.

• Functions no longer have an editable data output format. In NiceLabel 2017, the function output format does not allow additional editing, such as adding a prefix, suffix, or setting a date format. If you want to change the function output format, define a new variable, use the function data source as an initial value and set a changed format for its output.

• Consistent handling of DateTime fields. In NiceLabel 6, a data field was handled differently when being used on a label and when being used on a form. In NiceLabel 2017, a common data source is used and equally handled on a label and on a form. If you have a DateTime field with empty Time component, its output are the Date component alone (the output format for the field must be a default one with "HH:mm:ss" at the end). If you really want to force a format using the empty Time component at the end (00:00:00), you can add a space at the end of the output date format.

• Data from linked fields and objects. NiceLabel Designer Standard 6 had the option to merge values from various objects and to use the merged value in a new object. Such object data merging is not available in NiceLabel 2017. However, the linked fields functionality loads correctly when you import legacy label files (.LBL) into NiceLabel 2017. Values are merged using the Concatenate function.

Filter with LIKE relation will search for %value% not value%. In NiceLabel 6, LIKE relation was handled differently in NiceLabel Pro and in NiceForm. NiceLabel Pro created a condition for LIKE that queried for value% (wildcard at the end), whereas NiceForm created a condition that queried for %value% (wildcard at both ends). NiceLabel 2017 uses the %value% implementation – same as NiceForm previously.

Unification of LIKE database filter. The implementation of LIKE filter in NiceLabel 6 was done differently for NiceLabel Pro and for NiceForm applications. gas and bloating after miscarriage In NiceLabel Pro, the resulting dataset contained all records if the parameter for LIKE was empty. In NiceForm, the resulting dataset contained no records for the empty LIKE parameter. NiceLabel 2017 has inherited the functionality from NiceLabel Pro 6 and returns all records if a parameter for LIKE is empty. In other words, the LIKE condition is ignored if it has no value. To use the old functionality in new forms, set the LIKE parameter to an invalid value, such as "". In this case, no matching record is found and the returned dataset is empty.

• Prompting for value of the data source. NiceLabel 2017 will prompt a user for value of the data source just once – before the print process starts. The configurable option from NiceLabel 6 to prompt the user for data value mid-printing is no longer supported. The same result can be accomplished by splitting the print job in several batches, for which you provide data values all at once.

• Labels saved in NiceLabel versions prior to 5.4.4 cannot be used without a conversion. Print modules in NiceLabel 2017, such as NiceLabel Print, NiceLabel Automation and NiceLabel .NET API cannot print legacy labels (.LBL) that have been saved with NiceLabel prior to version 5.4.4. When you try to print such label, you receive the message "File was created by an older label designer and contains design features that cannot be used. To make the label available, open it in the latest version of designer and save it." To make these labels available for printing, open them in NiceLabel Designer 2017 and re-save them in the new .NLBL format.

• "Identical copies per label" setting is not copied from a V6 label. Within the .LBL file, you could save the number of label copies that were used at print time. The printing functionality is now handled by the auto-generated print form. gas oil ratio formula To change the default value, update the value of variable named PrintingForm_IdenticalCopies which is generated for the printing form. If you build a PowerForms application yourself, you already have a full control over the label quantity settings.

• EasyForms auto-generated forms. NiceLabel Pro V6 can generate the print form for each label that the user designs. You cannot change the functionality of the forms, but you can change their visual appearance a bit. When migrating labels from V6 to V2017, the print forms will not be imported as NiceLabel 2017 generates forms with different types of objects. The user can quickly re-create the forms with a click on a button.

NiceLabel 2017 is highly compatible with previous editions of NiceLabel in terms of form design functionality. A majority of older form solutions will run as-is, but adaptation is recommended to leverage the newly introduced capabilities. When making changes, the users will need to store the forms (solutions) using the new .NSLN document format. This section lists the differences and currently non-supported functionalities in NiceLabel 2017. If you open or import an .XFF form file in NiceLabel 2017 which uses these features, the system informs you. Non-supported functionalities are ignored. Further releases of NiceLabel 2017 might re-introduce some of the below listed features. electricity 101 episode 1 Objects and properties

• BMP images used on buttons are not transparent. Usually, images in BMP format do not include transparency. In NiceLabel 6, the color of left-top-most pixel was assigned a transparent color if a BMP image was used on the buttons. To use the transparent background in NiceLabel 2017, convert the images to PNG format which supports transparency by default.

• Date variable can have an empty value. When you define a date variable in NiceLabel 6 and connect it to the Edit field object, a user can select the date value in date picker, but cannot empty the value. In NiceLabel 2017, the date variable has no default value. If you want to assign the current date as a startup value, you can set the initial value of a date variable to "." (dot character). If you want to assign any other date as a startup value, set the initial value to reference another current date variable.

• Adding records to a table without a primary key is not possible. When you create a form to manage database records, you might see the error message "Cannot execute requested database operation. Dynamic SQL generation for the UpdateCommand is not supported against a SelectCommand that does not return any key column information." This happens when you try to add a new record to a table that does not have a primary key defined.

• Distributed printing is not supported. Distributed printing was used in the past to support printing from Pocket NiceLabel. With distributed printing, the Print button created a NiceLabel JOB file and sent it to NiceWatch for processing. If you need the similar functionality with your desktop PowerForms application, configure it using new actions in NiceLabel 2017, such as "HTTP Request".

• Normal / Data view. A single design surface view displays the current values of objects (if assigned), or displays six question marks (or less if the data source is limited to shorter length) for variable objects with assigned current value. To see the data view of the label as it would print out, open the Print dialog. The real-time label preview is rendered on-screen.

• Most of label export features are not supported (such as export to graphics, POF, SAP and general export). You can, however, use the store & recall functionality, which exports the label into printer’s memory and recalls it with label data at print time. gas zauberberg 1 Labels can be exported to graphics in PowerForms product using appropriate actions, such as Redirect printing to PDF, which will generate PDF file.

• Printing text boxes that do not fit into a designed rectangle. If the setting for "Print invalid objects" was set to "True" in NiceLabel 6, a non-fitting text box was still printed with a reported error in preview. In NiceLabel 2017, an error is reported if a text box does not fit. If a user wants to achieve the same response as with NiceLabel 6, he needs to enable the option "Ignore excessive content" for the Text box object.

• Running triggers in a failover cluster. If you enable failover cluster support in Automation, the information about the loaded configurations and enabled triggers is no longer propagated automatically to Automation on both nodes. NiceLabel Automation on each cluster node has its own settings. For a cluster to work as expected, make sure you deploy equal configuration on both nodes.
