[WB 19]Dot Matrix Printer

Startbeitrag von Ericus am 15.02.2017 09:21

Good day again

Now I want to print a delivery note to a dot matrix printer directly from the browser without preview.

I originally thought I will print to a PRN file and then use a Windev19 app to poll for new files every few seconds and print these to the printer.

However in webdev it seems you cannot print to a PRN file.

Any idea how to get the delivery note to the printer, as quickly as possible without the user having to first preview and select the printer?

Thanks in advance

Hi Ericus,

if you install a windev application to print, then the easiest thing to do is to make that application force the user to CHOOSE the printer from the available list when setting it up. The webdev app then just generate the file, and the printer/windev app knows where to send it.

Best regards

Hallo Fabrice

The problem is in generating the file in the WebDev application.

Although I know the file is going to be sent to the dot matrix printer I cannot create a .PRN file from within Webdev.

So the question is what file should I create to send it to the Epson dot matrix printer.

The Windev application is sorted out.

Hi Ericus,

considering that the windev app is the one printing, you can create ANY file you want, as long as your windev app knows how to handle it.

By example, but not limited to:
- a text file
- a pdf file
- a specific .FIC file

or I'm completely missing your point... :-)

Best regards
