"We have been using the ThermalLabel SDK for a few years now, and this has allowed us to give our customers the ability to print labels with complex layouts, barcodes and graphics, right from within our application, at the click of a button. We have now integrated the ThermalLabel Editor into our application, and we anticipate our customers will love the ease of use and simplicity to create their own advanced label designs."

The items on the design surface can be selected by the user by "drawing" a rectangular selection around the desired items; or by left-clicking on the item. Multiple items can be selected by left-clicking on the items while holding down CTRL hey. Each time the user selects one or multiple items some visual handlers appear on the design surface. Handlers aid the users with full resize and move actions as well as rotation. The handler's color can be changed to match your own UI App Style!
The ThermalLabel Editor features rulers to help users with the measurement process. There are two rulers; one which runs at the top of the editor's canvas and one which runs at the left side. The ruler's unit of measurement automatically changes to match the current Unit set up on the ThermalLabel object which is being edited. The ruler divisions, background and foreground colors as well as the color of highlighted zone can be changed to match your own UI App Style!
