Label Gallery SDK

The label printing solution for Windows application developers.

Label

Gallery

SDK (Software Development Kit) is the desktop integration edition of ba
r code and RFID
smart label printing.


The
Label

Gallery

SDK (software development kit) enables software publishers to integrate professional
bar code and RFID smart label printing into their desktop software product.

Label

Gallery

SDK has all of the la
be
l design functionality of
Label

Gallery Plus

and includes deployment
rights for the easy
-
to
-
di
stribute
Label
Gallery
Engine that is embedded in the software publisher’s desktop
application.

The

SDK offers the following benefits:



Powerful labe
l printing engine capable printing labels of any complexity (including bar codes and
RFID)



Optimal printing to any label printer



User friendly stand
-
alone label designer available

Integration of label printing into your software application gives your s
oftware additional functionality. At
the same time the en
d users do not even see the
Label

Gallery

interface because th
e software application
uses
Label

Gallery

label printing power in the background.

Easy integration of
Label

Gallery

bar code and RFID sma
rt label printing features into your
Windows desktop application:

1.
Create label templates with
Label

Gallery Plus

(p
art of the
Label

Gallery

SDK) on the developer's

desktop.

2. Integrate the
Label

Gallery

Engine into the c
ustom application using the
Lab
el

Gallery

programming
interfaces.

3. 3rd party application's insta
ller installs and registers
Label

Gallery

print engine to the end user's
computer.

4. Copy label templates to the customer's desktop computer.



Ease of Programming Integration


Use only
one reference to label pr
inting in your application.
Label

Gallery

SDK provides an easy reference
to the library of functions that makes label printing a seamlessly integrated feature of your application.


Ease of Embedded Printing

Label

Gallery

Engine is
the pr
int engine for label files.
Label

Gallery

Engine includes full printing
functiona
lities found throughout the
Label

Gallery family. Make the
Label

Gallery

Engine a seamlessly
integrated component of your software application and integrate label printi
ng to other Windows
-
based
applications through the ActiveX or .NET programming interfaces (Label

Gallery

Engine does not support
label design capabilities).


Ease of Label Design


Use
Label

Gallery Plus
, the advanced label designer for professional bar cod
e and RFID labeling, to design
label templates that are deployed with your software application. Design the label template once but have
your application print the label to any printer on the market.


Ease of Deployment


Use the
Label

Gallery

SDK merge mo
dule to incl
ude the installation of the
Label

Gallery

components in
the setup wizard of your software application. The label printing functionality is fully integrated in your
application’s installation wizard.

Label

Gallery

SDK is the right tool for integ
rating bar code and RFID label design and printing with
thermal printer support into 3rd party software applications.


PocketSDK

The Label Gallery PocketSDK (software development kit) enables software publishers to integrate
professional bar code and RFID

smart label printing into their mobile software product.


Label

Gallery

PocketSDK has all of the la
bel design functionality of
Label

PocketSDK offers the following benefits:



A powerful printing engine for thermal label printers (adding a missing printing support to
Windows mobile platform)



Print labels of

almost any complexity (including bar codes and RFID)



Easy integration and deployment without much of a learning curve

The Print Button of Your Mobile Application

Pocket
Label

Gallery

Engine is the perfect bolt
-
on label printing engine for any mobile app
lication:



No need to learn the
native printer

language



No need to write an embedded printer code or communicate with the mobile operating system's I/O



Deploy one interface for your mobile label printing application that of
fers the flexibility to print to
mobile and desktop printers.




Ease of Deployment


Pocket
Label

Gallery

Engine is a set of Microsoft.NET Compact Framework Assemblies that expose
programmatic interfaces to 3rd party applications. The .NET Assembly interfaces include the same mobile
label

pr
inting components as Pocket
Label

Gallery. With the
Label

Gallery

PocketSDK, there is no need to
manually code label templates in the thermal pri
nter’s native language. The
Label

Gallery

desktop label
designer enables graphical design of your label

temp
late. Simply export the label for
the mobile computer
and let
Label

Gallery

generate the native printer code.


Ease of Integration

Easy integration of
Label

Gallery

bar code and RFID smart label printing in
to your Web application:

1.
Label

Gallery

Pocket
S
DK adds a reference to the
Label

Gallery

print engine in your development project.

2. When you compile the
project for deployment, the
Label

Gallery

PocketSDK runtime Assemblies are
seamlessly added to your installer.

3. Simply install the main applicatio
n on the target device and label printing is i
nstalled automatically.

4.
Label

Gallery

PocketSDK enables mobile applications to control label printing functions to thermal label
printers. Your application never communicates with the input/output ports on
the mobile computer.

Simple, st
andardized API calls to the
Label

Gallery

Pocket Engine allow the mobile application to print to a
thermal label printer via TCP/IP, Bluetooth and COM (serial) ports.

Distributed (Print Server) Label Printing


(Label printing

through Gallery
Watch print server (inte
gration
middleware, part of
Label

Gallery TruePro
))

In addition to printing to a therma
l printer directly,
Label

Gallery

PocketSDK supports the distributed (print
server) printing method. The print engine creates a .
JOB file with specific label printing instructions that

are sent to a server where GalleryWatch is running.

The Gallery
Watch integration middleware module executes the instructions from the .JOB file and enables
label printing to any printer on your netwo
rk, inc
luding office printers. The
Label

Gallery

PocketSDK
bec
omes a mobile client to the Gallery
Watch centralized Print Server.

Label

Gallery

PocketSDK is the right tool for integrating bar code and RFID label design and
printing with thermal printer supp
ort into 3rd party software applications for Windows Mobile
devices.
