Major Upgrade of Seagull BarTender Web Print Server Released

Posted January 7, 2011

Click to Zoom

In addition to Internet Explorer, BarTender Web Print Server now supports Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Safari (shown).

Seagull Scientific released version 9.3 of BarTender Web Print Server ("WPS") in November, 2010. This web application, originally introduced with the release of BarTender version 8.0 back in 2007, allows users to select and print BarTender label formats from within web browsers instead of BarTender. (Although BarTender Web Print Server is free, it requires use of the Enterprise Automation edition of BarTender.)

Some of the many enhancements in the new version of Web Print Server:

  • ActiveX No Longer Required for Internet Printing
    When using a printer connected by LAN or WAN to the Web Print Server server, Web Print Server has always supported print requests from a variety of browsers running on different hardware platforms and operating systems. We refer to this as "Standard Windows Printing."

    Until now, however, printing over the internet (instead of a LAN or WAN) required that the client be a Windows PC running Internet Explorer and ActiveX. It also required that Windows printer drivers be installed on the client PC.

    The new version of Web Print Server now supports Internet Printing using many more operating systems, browsers, and driver options for clients, including:

  • Printer Drivers Now Optional!
    Using the new Direct-to-port Internet Printing option, you no longer need to have a printer driver installed on the client. Instead, the print code can be routed directly through the browser to the printer port.

  • New Java Client-side Print Module
    Our long-established ActiveX Client-side Print Module is still provided and supported. However, a Java Client-side Print Module is now offered as well, providing support for a wider variety of browsers and operating systems.

  • Support for Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari Browsers
    The new Java Client-side Print Module enables support for additional browsers besides just Internet Explorer. This includes Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Safari.

  • Support for Linux and Mac OS X Clients
    Internet Printing is now supported using Linux and Apple Macintosh OS X clients in addition to Windows clients.

  • Supports New Data Entry Controls
    BarTender v9.3 added support for several new types of controls for use on data entry forms, including checkboxes, radio buttons, and additional list controls. Version 9.3 of Web Print Server now supports these additional controls as well.

WPS v9.3 updated with new forms capabilities.
