Leading barcode software provider updates UWP app to print labels with variable data entered at print time
ConnectCode, a world leading provider of barcode software and fonts, today announced the release of a new version (v10.9.5) of ConnectCode Barcode Software and Fonts. This version introduces new capabilities in the bundled Universal Windows Platform (UWP) Barcode & Label app to support printing of labels with variable data entered at print time.

When printing labels, a user often need to enter data only at print time. For example, a user may want to print a batch of labels with a specific product name and price, and then another batch of labels with a different product name and price. Barcode & Label supports this by allowing users to specify variable data at print time just before the print job is sent to the printer. The data entered can be specific to each individual label or used for a batch of labels. Both the Text and Barcode object in the app supports this data-at-print-time capability. Besides supporting variable data at print time, Barcode & Label also supports printing of labels with data in an Excel spreadsheet, contacts from Microsoft People's app or using a serialized running number.

Barcode & Label is a free and extremely popular Windows app that comes with a huge label stock database for creating Price Labels, Address Labels, Inventory Tags and Business Cards.
