Simple Color Mode

Also:

The Simple Color (Esc*r#U) command, sometimes referred to as Set Planes Per Row, allows color selection from a fixed palette. CMY or RGB raster data must be transferred by plane (Esc*b#V) as well as by row (Esc*b#W). The pixel encoding mode is indexed planar. Simple Color Esc * r # U (also known as Set Planes Per Row) Creates a fixed-size palette whose color specification cannot be modified.

The absolute value of the value field indicates the number of planes per row of raster data to be sent. The number of entries in the new palette is 2n, with index values 0 to 2n -1. For example a 4-plane palette has 16 entries, with index numbers 0 to 15.

This command creates a new palette and overwrites the current palette. PCL commands that modify the palette (Esc*v#A, Esc*v#B, Esc*v#C, Esc*v#I) are locked out. When a Simple Color palette is popped from the stack (Esc*p#P), it cannot be modified; and pixel encoding mode reverts to indexed planar.

A value field of 1 creates a 2-entry black and white default LaserJet palette.

A value field of 3 creates an 8-entry Device RGB palette (compatible with a PCL Imaging Mode palette.) The colors are 0=Black, 1=Red, 2=Green, 3=Yellow, 4=Blue, 5=Magenta, 6=Cyan, 7=White

A value field of -3 creates an 8-entry palette in Device CMY (3 planes) color space. The colors are 0=White, 1=Cyan, 2=Magenta, 3=Blue, 4=Yellow, 5=Green, 6=Red, 7=Black

A value field of -4 supports 4-plane Device KCMY color. Plane 1 is the black pen, and planes 2, 3, and 4 respectively are the CMY planes.

Simple Color Text

A simple example to show how to print 3 lines of text each in a different color: ESC*p0P ESC*r3U ESC*v1STEST ESC*p1P ESC*v1S" The 1 in *v1S could be changed for other forground colors,

3-plane color graphics

The following shows a simple 3 plane color graphics PCL file output that prints CMY colors, then blends them to produce BLACK, RED, GREEN and BLUE. Thanks to Roy Feague, you can down load this example as a binary file: bin3.pcl

4-plane color text

The following shows a simple test of some colored text using the KCMY space in a 4 color plane. Because the data is text rather than graphics, the *v#S command is used to pick colors from the palette.
