How do you print a string in Filemaker Pro? I want to send a string to an electronic display using generic serial printer in Windows. Also is there an equivalent printer driver for Mac?
I can communicate with the electronic display with generic printer driver. The print command will print a record, but how do you set it up to print a string? I am just looking for basic information on how to use the print command.
I believe the Troi Serial plugin may work for you. Check out http://www.troi.com/software/serialplugin.html.

Look at their Smile IO features here:
And here is a screen shot from the related portion of the Smile applescript dictionary.
