Lasso server pushing local printer

CoMedia
Lasso 8.6, Apple xServe 10.6.8

Dear all,

I am developing a ticketing solution where the central database is, of course, on the remote server. I want Lasso to push paid tickets directly to one the local Epson TM-T20 receipt printers. It has to be fast! The tickets include a barcode. I have seen several solutions where this is done either through PDF and/or OS Process, but only on the server side. Can someone point me in the right direction to have the print(s) come straight out of the local printer connected to the ticketing laptop?

Dear Alfred,

you have the printer connected via RS232 or use an external print server?
If you use an external / internal print server can print to a normal
laser printer using Javascript.
If you have a printer connected via RS232 (USB virtual serial) you can
use something like
http://www.activexperts.com/serial-port-component/howto/html/
But it is an ActiveX component for Windows.

Alfred,

another solution idea:
RealStudio (Mac/Win/Lin) write simple standalone application as browser
for your ticket application and extend your HTML code for printing data
(write custom print tag, is transparent for all browser). Simple Browser
parse data for printing from HTML code which generate remote server.
RealStudio compiled application (Simple Browser for example) send data
to serial port directly which find and parsed in HTML ticket page. You
must write simple JavaScript for print action (print ticket).
It is cheaper and nice solution with custom web browser (RB use WebKit
on Win/OSX, Lin). You can expand functions about different features how
you need. This solution is closed and simple for user.

Hoi Alfred,

I use a printing solution with pdf's
at the end of the file that creates the pdf I use:

[PDF_SetFieldvalue(
-PDFsrc='name_of_pdffile',
-Output='pipe',
-SaveAs='lp -d RECEPTIE_5650')]

where RECEPTIE_5650 is the name of our local printer
this is as fast as the printer can spool the files

hope this helps
miran

Re: Lasso server pushing local printer

That pipe option only exists in one of my tags for the PDF suite.

I guess it's time to publish updates to that.

As mentioned earlier, CUPS is built into MacOS X and Linux. You can either
use one of my tags to do your pdf stuff and pipe directly to CUPS or use
something like PassThru or os_process to tell CUPS to print your document.

If you're on a mac, you can go to http://127.0.0.1:631 for more CUPS info.


Thanks

Steffan
