Continuous printing

Postby Tom Rage » February 21st, 2004, 4:10 pm

Hello,

I like the PrintPreview component very much. Good work Kambiz!

Do you have any experience with ticket printing (point of sale tickets)? Since a ticket has no pages, I suppose it would require continuous printing and maybe a possibility to send a code at the end for printers who are able to cut the paper themselves.

The main problem will be the 32767 units limitation I guess?

Any ideas much appreciated.
Tom.

Hi Tom,

I remember one or two years ago I received a mail informing about printing labels using TPrintPreview. Because of that, I think you can print the tickets by this component.

Did you try to define a custom paper size? For example, considering 4 rows of the tickets as a page.

Thanks,
Kambiz

You're right Kambiz, I did ask a question about labels back then.

The problem is not the same though. A ticket printer has a special custom paper size. It's rather small, no problem to achieve that but the paper height is virtualy endless. If a customer would buy 200 goods, I can end up with a ticketlength of 1 meter or more.

You see what I mean?

Regards,
Tom.
