HP LaserJet printers - PCL Commands, Basic Page Formatting, and Font Selection

In this document:

Introduction

This document lists the HP LaserJet Printer Command Language (PCL) printer commands for basic page formatting and font selection.

PCL defines a standard set of commands enabling programs to communicate with HP or HP-compatible printers. For further information about PCL commands, HP-GL/2, macros, or PJL commands, use the Technical Reference Manual set, part number 5021-0377. Order the manual set from HP's Support Materials Organization.

    NOTE: To order Parts, Supplies, and Accessories, contact the nearest authorized HP dealer or reseller. Click here to go to a list of Dealer locator phone numbers, or refer to the User's Guide that came with the HP product.

About using these commands

  • Paper Source and Page Size commands may not work with the product.

    CAUTION: Some products require different Paper Source and Page Size commands than those that are contained in this document.

  • For supported paper tray and paper size options, see the User's Manual or check the product Web site.
  • The commands are listed in hierarchical order and give the decimal and hexadecimal equivalents.
  • Values in the parentheses (x) identify the lower case of the termination character that is used for combining commands.
  • Ec represents the escape character for the software. In DOS Edit, Ec is represented by holding down the CTRL key and pressing the letter P. Release both keys, and press the ESC key.
  • The symbols, # and #...#, are variables that are replaced with the numbers needed for a document.

    Example

    To set the number of copies to 14, Ec&l#X, replace the # or #...# with the following:

    ASCII

    14

    Decimal

    049 052

    Hexadecimal

    31 34

    Use the following table to help translate into decimal or hexadecimal:

    027 038 107 #...# 072 (104)

    1B 26 6B #...# 48 (68)

    The Horizontal Motion Index (HMI) command designates the distance between columns in .0083-inch increments. When fixed pitch fonts are selected, all printable characters, including the space and backspace characters, are affected by HMI. When proportional fonts are selected, the HMI affects only the control code space character. The default HMI is equal to the pitch value in the font header. The printer escape sequence to be sent is as follows:

    Ec&k#H # is equal to a variable that is derived from the following formula:


    Horizontal Printable Area

    ------------------------------------ X 120 = #
    Desired characters per line


    If the desired pitch or number of characters per horizontal inch is known, use the following formula:

    120/Desired characters per inch = #

    Vertical line spacing


    Vertical Motion Index (VMI)


    # of .0208-inch Increments



    Ec&l#C (c)


    027 038 108 #...# 067 (99)

    1B 26 6C #...# 43 (63)

    The Vertical Motion Index (VMI) command designates the distance between rows in .0208-inch increments (the vertical distance that the cursor will move for a line feed operation). This command affects the line feed and half-line feed spacing. The factory default VMI is eight, which corresponds to six lines per inch. VMI can be selected from the printer control panel or by sending a printer escape sequence: Ec&#C . # is equal to a variable that is derived from the following formula:

    Vertical Printable Area
    ---------------------------------- X 48 = #
    Desired Lines Per Page

    Note: Use either VMI (most precise method of line spacing) or Lines per inch, as only the last command will execute.
