Which CodeSoft 2015 add-ons are available?

Form Designer & Form Viewer
These powerful design tools allow you to create custom applications. These add-ons are available with CodeSoft Enterprise and Runtime versions.

Printer Object File Manager
This utility generates intelligent native printer code to a Printer Object File based on a CodeSoft label design. The POF has placeholders for variable data in the output code that allow the host application to "swap" field names within the output file with actual variable data from the legacy database before the code is sent to the printer. The information in the files is identified by delimiters that enable an analysis program to detect the data and replace it with the corresponding values.

Command File Interpreter
This add-on to CodeSoft Enterprise & Pro label design softwares that automatically prints labels based on a "Command File Interpreter" sent from another application. The command files can be used to transfer information generated by other systems or other computers, such as a central server or a mini-computer. For example, a centralised management application can control the printing of labels using a command file, or an invoicing program could pass information into a command file, which would in turn print a label.
