Bar Chart in PCL5

Hi All!


Does anybody know how to make bar (or pie) charts using PCL5 code?


Thanks in advance.

Re: Bar Chart in PCL5

You can draw filled rectangles using the appropriate PCL Rectangular Area Fill escape sequences.


For drawing pie sections, you'd be better off looking at the HP-GL/2 commands (HP-GL/2 is a subset of the PCL5 Page Description Language); this language subset can also be used to draw rectangles.

Re: Bar Chart in PCL5

yes Chris I got that, but I'd like to see some code examples to figure it out. Thanks anyway for your support!
