Automation.mkh

Automation.mkh demonstrates basic automation and serialization. Drawing automation forces WinMark Pro to wait for a "start mark" signal (Wait Digital Before Piece) before beginning marking and then forces WinMark to wait for the "start mark" signal to clear (Wait Digital After Piece) before beginning another piece. Event Builder automation (On Before Mark Piece event) increments values for Text1 and Barcode1 objects each mark. Text2 is a static object but could easily be converted to a real-time date/time format.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: To prevent serialization of multiple objects (for example - a barcode and human-readable text object) from becoming "out-of-synch" with one another, serialization of multiple objects should be performed in a Visual Basic or Visual C++ front-end. WinMark Pro can not guarantee synchronization of multiple serial objects in the event that marking is aborted during the mark or in the event of a system crash.

 

 

Medium Filled Matrix.mkh

Medium Filled Matrix.mkh is a plot tool to assist in finding the optimum Power and Resolution settings for a fixed Velocity (50 IPS) on a given material where all or some of your mark objects are raster-filled. You may modify the file and change parameters, such as Velocity, to better suit your specific requirements.

 

 

Medium Stroke Matrix.mkh

Medium Stroke Matrix.mkh is a plot tool to assist in finding the optimum Power and speed (Velocity) settings for a fixed Resolution (750 DPI) on a given material where all or some of your mark objects are stroked and not filled. You may modify the file and change parameters, such as Resolution, to better suit your specific requirements.

 

 

ReadSerialPortData.mkh

ReadSerialPortData.mkh demonstrates basic automation and serial port input. Drawing automation forces WinMark Pro to wait for a "start mark" signal (Wait Digital Before Piece) before beginning marking and then forces WinMark to wait for the "start mark" signal to clear (Wait Digital After Piece) before beginning another piece. Event Builder automation (On Before Mark Piece event) reads serial port values for Text1 and 2D Barcode1 objects each mark. Note that an output is cleared about each serial port read and then reset after the mark. This serves as a form of hardware handshaking to inform the host system that serial data has been read and that new data can be sent.

 

 

ExtendedChar.mkh

ExtendedChar.mkh displays the extended character set available for each individual TrueType or WinMark Pro stroke font. Select the Text1 object and change Font Type (on the Format tab) to Stroke or TrueType and then select the desired font from the drop-down list.

 

 

StrokeFonts.mkh

StrokeFonts.mkh displays a sample character set for all 12 built-in WinMark Pro stroke fonts.
