Example Code


*------------------------------------------------------------------------ * @Author: Krengel Technology * @Description: * This is a test program to illustrate how to call the * UPS_printZPL() subprocedure to print a ZPL label returned from UPS. * * To achieve this, pass a filepath that was returned in a UPSSARSPK * record as part of a UPS_shipAccept() call. This filepath is in field * SARSPK.LBLIMG. UPS_printZPL() does not have request or response data * tables. * * UPS_printZPL() will return the UniqueID of the record it printed if * it was successful, or 0 if an error occurred. If an error occurred, * you should look at the fields in ErrorDS to retrieve information about * the error. *------------------------------------------------------------------------ H DFTACTGRP(*NO) ACTGRP(*CALLER) BNDDIR('UPSBND') OPTION(*NODEBUGIO) /COPY QRPGLECPY,UPS // This is included for demo output purposes.

It // accepts a value of UPS_PRINT_OPEN or UPS_PRINT_CLS. If you pass // UPS_PRINT_OPEN, the underlying printer file is left open until // you either subsequently call UPS_printZPL() with UPS_PRINT_CLS, // or until you call UPS_cleanup(). This feature is generally used // in large batch processing where many ZPL labels are being printed. if UPS_printZPL( LabelPath : ErrorDS ) = 0; WriteToJobLog( 'API Error: ' + NewLine ); WriteToJobLog( 'Error Code: ' + %Trim(ErrorDS.Code) + NewLine ); WriteToJobLog( 'Error Severity: ' + %Char(ErrorDS.Severity) + NewLine ); WriteToJobLog( 'Error Source: ' + %Trim(ErrorDS.Pgm) + NewLine ); WriteToJobLog( 'Error Text: ' + %Trim(ErrorDS.Text) + NewLine ); exsr cleanup; return; endif; exsr cleanup; return; begsr cleanup; // Always call UPS_cleanup() any time your program will terminate UPS_cleanup(); *INLR = *ON; endsr; /END-FREE
