    Webprint Pos printer experiences?

    auguste

      I am looking at the new Star webprnt Pos printer, that looks interesting.

       

      Have anybody tried to setup printing from Filemaker using this printer, using the webprnt technology?

      The clever thing is that this printer seems to enable us to print direct to this printer, without IOS7 stupid printer dialogues.

       

      But we have to figure out how to make the XMl / Java , and how to send it to the printer. Maybe through the Webviwer?

       

      Easy to read, maintain and modify for developers; simply usethe appropriate XML tags or integrate Star’s WebPRNT Javascript library into your web-based application to begin printing from your application to Star’sTSP650II WebPRNT thermal receipt printer.In addition to web-based applications,

          Not sure if you are still following this thread, but using the documentation at Star WebPRNT User's Manual you can craft an XML statement that then you post to the printer at http://ipaddress/StarWebPRNT/SendMessage (requires a login on the printer).

           

          Here is a sample of the XML

           

          <StarWebPrint xmlns="http://www.star-m.jp" xmlns:i="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"><Request>&lt;root&gt;&lt;initialization/&gt;&lt;alignment position="right"/&gt;&lt;logo number="1"/&gt;&lt;text&gt;TEL +44 1494 471111\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;alignment position="left"/&gt;&lt;text&gt;\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;alignment position="center"/&gt;&lt;text&gt;Thank you for your coming. \x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;text&gt;We hope you'll visit again.\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;alignment position="left"/&gt;&lt;text&gt;\x0a\x1bR\x03&lt;/text&gt;&lt;text&gt;Apple                                     #20.00\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;text&gt;Banana                                    #30.00\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;text&gt;Grape                                     #40.00\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;text&gt;Lemon                                     #50.00\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;text&gt;Orange                                    #60.00\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;text emphasis="true"&gt;Subtotal                                 #200.00\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;text&gt;\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;text underline="true"&gt;Tax                                       #10.00\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;text underline="false"/&gt;&lt;text emphasis="true"/&gt;&lt;text width="2"&gt;Total            #210.00\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;text width="1"/&gt;&lt;text emphasis="false"/&gt;&lt;text&gt;\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;text&gt;Received                                 #300.00\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;text width="2"&gt;Change            #90.00\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;text width="1"/&gt;&lt;text&gt;\x0a&lt;/text&gt;&lt;cutpaper feed="true"/&gt;&lt;/root&gt;</Request></StarWebPrint>
          

           

          We use the Base Elements plugin and a server side script to print to the printer triggered from an iPad.

            Hi Daniel,

             

            thank you for the reply,

            I also looked at the Start webPRNT,

            But never did the final setup,

            For now we do plain A5  Laser prints instead.
