Research and development of OTC drug packaging design template

the State Drug Administration has successively issued a series of important documents on standardizing drug packaging, such as the administrative measures for the classification of prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs (Trial), the detailed rules for the specification of drug packaging and labeling (provisional), and the administrative provisions on the proprietary labeling of over-the-counter drugs, which have made strict provisions on OTC drug packaging. This plays an important role in ensuring the convenience and safety of people's medication, but it also brings some difficulties to the OTC drug packaging designers: when designing any OTC drug packaging, we need to consult this series of documents, which is not only time-consuming and laborious, but also a little negligence, it is possible to omit some regulations, making the designed packaging do not meet the requirements. To solve this problem, this paper puts forward the research and development scheme of OTC drug packaging design template. C drug profile

otc (over the counter) drugs are generally known as over-the-counter drugs in the world. Compared with prescription drugs (Rx), over-the-counter drugs vigorously develop plastic granulator technology that utilizes renewable energy and industrial waste heat. As the name suggests, OTC refers to drugs that consumers can buy directly from pharmacies or pharmacies without a doctor's prescription. According to their medical knowledge, consumers can use the following to briefly introduce the characteristics of the hardware of the heat insulation strip tensile strength testing machine. With the help of the product label, they can self medicate minor short-term diseases, or purchase drugs selectively under the guidance of pharmacists and use them according to the prescribed methods

according to the safety, stability and complexity of use, OTC drugs are divided into the following two categories

(1) class a over-the-counter drugs: over-the-counter drugs that can only be sold in social pharmacies and pharmacies of medical institutions that have the drug business license and are equipped with licensed pharmacists or pharmaceutical technicians above pharmacist

(2) class B OTC drugs: in addition to social pharmacies and pharmacies of medical institutions, they can also be retailed in approved general stores

2. The necessity of developing OTC drug packaging design templates

templates are actually a special kind of documents, which can provide basic tools for constructing final documents. The template suitable for OTC drug packaging design should comprehensively integrate the national policy on OTC drug packaging into the text design and decoration design, so that OTC drug packaging designers can design OTC drug packaging that meets the requirements without consulting a large number of national regulations, which greatly facilitates the work of OTC drug packaging designers

3. Production of drug packaging design template

(1) basic knowledge of ActiveX containers and servers

activex containers are applications that can incorporate embedded or linked ActiveX objects into files. The files managed by ActiveX container applications can realize the seamless integration of ActiveX objects and their own data

activex server is an application that can create ActiveX objects for ActiveX containers. It supports the visualization and in place of ActiveX objects

(2) writing programs

before making templates, you should first write ActiveX container applications and word processing server programs with MFC AppWizard of vc++6.0

first generate an ActiveX container application and name it medpack. After the program framework is established, the following contents need to be expanded: changing the position of the object, changing the state of the container object, accessing the data of the container object, realizing the rectangular tracker, setting the mouse shape of the rectangular tracker, realizing the hit test, realizing the cumbersome and safe object selection operation, drawing the object, deleting the object, setting the input focus of ActiveX object, double clicking the mouse, clipboard operation, viewing the object properties Right click shortcut menu operation, etc

after compiling the container program, execute the container program, insert various pictures, WordPad documents, etc. into the executable file, and copy the contents of WordPad documents and word documents. At this time, the inserted text content is not WYSIWYG, and usually ghosting will occur, and the set font size will also change. We can not only cooperate with brands to achieve more efficient innovation process, but also copy the text. The content of the word is static and can not be realized any more. Therefore, we need to write another word processing server program to solve this problem. You can name the generated word processing server program wordedit

(3) making templates

after writing the program, the next step is to make OTC drug packaging design templates. Because OTC drugs are divided into class a OTC drugs and class B OTC drugs, the packaging forms of OTC drugs usually include bottled, bagged and boxed, so the OTC drug packaging design template is divided into class a OTC drugs bottled, class a OTC drugs bagged, class a OTC drugs boxed, class B OTC drugs bottled, class B OTC drugs bagged and class B OTC drugs boxed. Next, take the preparation of "boxed B OTC drugs" as an example to introduce how to make the corresponding template

according to the relevant provisions in the detailed rules for the specification of drug packaging and labeling (Provisional), such drug packaging should be marked with the following contents: [drug name], [Specification], [function and indications], [usage and dosage], [storage], [production date], [production batch number], [expiry date], [production enterprise], etc. If some labels cannot indicate all the above contents due to size restrictions, the contents can be appropriately reduced, but three items [drug name], [Specification] and [production batch number] must be marked. In addition, as it is a class B over-the-counter drug, the proprietary logo of this kind of over-the-counter drug should also be marked, as shown in Figure 1

execute the medpack container program and insert the box diagram into the executable file, as shown in Figure 2. Then insert the background image and the required wordedit items, such as "double click here to enter the drug name (Chinese)", "double click here to enter [function and indications]", "double click here to enter [manufacturer]", etc. Finally, insert the proprietary logo of class B OTC drugs in the upper right corner of the front, and link the description of this logo next to it for the convenience of users. After the production is completed, it is saved in the current project folder, and the template is named "boxed class B OTC drugs.Tem". The finished template is shown in Figure 3

other OTC drug packaging design templates can be made according to this method

(4) functional features

this set of OTC drug packaging design template is suitable for all OTC drug packaging. For different OTC drug packages, the template has corresponding content in line with national regulations. If you need to view the detailed description, you can also double-click the link item to view it. The "Insert Object" and "copy" and "paste" menu items in the template are used for the design of pictures and WordArt. Designers can use CorelDRAW, Photoshop and other software to insert or copy the designed pictures and WordArt into the template

this set of templates has the following characteristics

(1) double click each wordedit item to enter the required content, complete the text design, and the font color and size can be changed

(2) using the "Insert Object" and the "copy" and "paste" menu items, you can insert or copy and paste various pictures, such as the pictures drawn with Photoshop and CorelDRAW, to complete the decoration design of drug packaging

(3) select an ActiveX object and drag with the mouse to change the size and position of the object

(4) select an ActiveX object, open the "view" tab of the "properties" menu item, and enter the zoom ratio to accurately change the size of the ActiveX object

(5) some ActiveX objects in the template
