Print Form Data

To print data on a CMS-1500 form first initialize the form fields using the CMSFormData class then print them using the CMS1500Form class

Initialize Form Fields

CMSFormData cmsData = new CMSFormData();
 
cmsData.BoxHeader = “All Practice” + Environment.NewLine + “New York”;
cmsData.Box1A = true;
cmsData.Box1Aa = “Insured ID Number”;
cmsData.Box2 = “Jane Doe”;
cmsData.Box3A = DateTime.Today;
cmsData.Box3C = true;
cmsData.Box4 = “Same As Patient”;
cmsData.Box5A = “123 Washington Avenue”;
cmsData.Box5B = “SpringField”;
cmsData.Box5C = “IL”;
cmsData.Box5D = “12345”;
cmsData.Box5E = “2122323321”;
cmsData.Box6A = true;

Next print it using the CMS1500Form class.

Printing Fields

CMS1500Form cmsForm = new CMS1500Form();
cmsForm.Data = cmsData;
cmsForm.Print();

CMS-1500 forms must also be placed in printer

Sample Output

 

 

Note that the printing offsets may need to be slightly adjusted in the sample below.  See the Setting Printing Offsets topic in the help files to adjust your printer offsets correctly.

Creating a Custom Form Field

By default, the following fields are available; TextField, PriceField, PhoneField and DateField.  Custom fields can be created easily.  Just derive from the FormField class and override the GetText() method.

The Code

public class MyCustomField : FormField {
   public MyCustomField(string name): base(name){}

   public MyCustomField(string name, decimal? data, double x, double y, double width, double height): base(name, x, y, width, height){
      Data = data;
   }

   public decimal? Data {
      get;
      set;
   }

   public override string GetText(){
     if (Data != null && Data.HasValue){
       return Data.Value.ToString("F2");
     }
     return null;
    }
}

 

Dynamically modify data before Printing

Form fields can be modified before being sent to the printer.  Field coordinates, width, heights and alignment ( vertical and horizontal ) are modifiable.

The Code

cmsForm.BeforePrint += cmsForm_BeforePrint;
 
private void cmsForm_BeforePrint(object sender, FormEventArgs e){
    //e.Cells has all fields that will be send to printer.
    //The field properties can be modified
e.Cells[0].X = 12;
e.Cells[0].Y = 13;
e.Cells[1].Width = 3;
e.Cells[1].Height = 0.5;
}

 CMS1500Form  comes FREE with a license of RDPCrystal EDI Library.   However it can be purchased separately in our online store
