How Custom Label Printing Forms Create Your Ideal Printing Process

How Custom Label Printing Forms Create Your Ideal Printing Process

Custom label printing forms you can design specifically for your company


We all know the saying, “You can’t have your cake and eat it too.” I am here to tell you that with TEKLYNX 2019 products, it will feel like you can! Prior to TEKLYNX 2019 products, customization within the label printing forms was not possible. In previous versions, the print form layout was not editable, but with the enhancements we’ve provided, you now can have custom label printing forms to create your ideal printing process. 


Driven by customer feedback from our global install base, LABELVIEW 2019 and CODESOFT 2019 introduce our new Form Editor and updated Form Designer to enable efficient custom label printing. I’ll show you how these customizable additions will help you create a better print solution for you and your company.


First up, Form Designer - Separate the label design process from the label printing process to create an efficient printing solution while also reducing errors. 


Form Designer is a tool that is accessible without having to launch LABELVIEW 2019 or CODESOFT 2019, which helps enforce user roles within your team. For example, those who create labels and forms won’t have to worry about their work being changed. This eliminates steps for your print users while simultaneously lessening the stress for those who take time to create the label printing forms. Below is a quick peek at what Form Designer can do for you to help you barcode better. 

Now for Form Editor - Organize print time data entry & enforce your ideal printing process. 


Form Designer and Form Editor are similar in the way they allow you to design your ideal printing process, label print form with print time data entry fields and is built within the label designer itself, which allows you to work in a familiar spot. This feature allows you to enforce data entry rules for your print users so that data is formatted correctly 100% of the time. Use Form Editor to add drop-down menus, incrementing value fields, sliders, date pickers, radio buttons, and more. Below is an example of a label using a customized print form:


We know that every company is different, which is why we designed our 2019 label design products to give you the control to develop your ideal printing process. LABELVIEW 2019 and CODESOFT 2019 are designed to support what’s behind the barcode; designed to support you.

Is there a way to have the forms tab display as the default when printing? I know you can go into forms properties and set it to display for the series or each label, however my users are used to having the forms tab display automatically. Thank you, Anthony

Thanks so much, makes it easier for my users.

Hi Anthony, Yes, in CODESOFT and LABELVIEW go to Tools > Configuration > Printing, and set the 'Print dialog start tab' to 'Forms'.

I am trying to create a form where I enter a process order in a text box , click search button and display process order (single row) from database table and corresponding label display based on select record. Is it possible with LABELVIEW or CODESOFT?

Travis M Wayne / Date: 10/1/2019

Yes, if I understand your request correctly, both LABELVIEW and CODESOFT are able to do this. The Label Select form sample provides the ability to select an ID (your Process Order) from a dataset and returns the associated label. If you have any additional questions, please contact our TEKLYNX customer support team.
