Defining Alphanumeric Counter

Problem

Counters are usually numerical, but you would like to define your counters that use different numeral systems.

Solution

For example, you want to use the counter in the Base 36 numeral system.

NiceLabel does not support the Base 36 out-of-the-box, but you can define it in your counter properties.

Use Arabic numerals 0-9 and the Latin letters A-Z. 

  • In NiceLabel Designer go to Variables > Add new variable and select Counter
  • Double click your Counter variable to open Counter properties window. 
  • Go to the Input rules tab.
  • In Allowed characters drop-down menu select Alphanumeric
  • In Check range section enable checkboxes for Minimum value and Maximum value
  • Enter 1 in Minimum value edit field, and Z in Maximum value edit field. 
  • In Rollover settings section enable Using min/max value checkbox. 
  • Click OK.

Your counter will count  1,2,3,...9,A,B,C,...X,Y,Z,1,2,3,...
