ASP; open the cash drawer via receipt printer

PW

I have an electronic cash drawer as part of a point-of-sale installation.
You're supposed to be able to automatically open the cash drawer with some
printer commands (drawer is connected to the receipt printer) but I can't
get it to open automatically. I want it to open when the customers receipt
is printed.

How do you send printer escape sequences to a windows printer via ASP ?

The cash drawer model is ... Posiflex CR-4100 Cash Drawer

Thanks in advance,
PW

you dont. You'll need to build some sort of custom component that you
install on the client PC. ASP isn't really the right technology for this
type of app, and you may want to rethink it if you haven't already spent too
much time on it.

The application is finished and in use by 24 stores. A new customer however
wants the electronic cash drawer, hence the requirement.

There is not much you can do with ASP , Server side software, you could
write a custom ocx thats downloaded and sends codes to printer,.
or you could write a small vb tray app thats looks for reciept window (page)
and triggers cash draw.

Bummer. Should've anticipated that. :)

What you want is simple, but it's client side. Probably even
Javascript on a button or event could do it, but ask in a client-side
group.
