VB.NET POS SYSTEM

P: n/a
Dear all,

I'm trying to write a pizza delivery pos system using VB.NET but I
don't know how to start doing it. Any suggestion can tell me? I would
like to know how I can design the system and also some detail of the
program like how can I use VB.NET to drive a network thermal
printer(for example after customer making order, the system need to
send th order to kitchen's thermal printer). Thank you very much

Perhaps we could just write one for you......

I am not in the pizza business but you may want to try using a database for
the back end and a windows forms app for the gui??

As long as your printer is installed you should be able to select it to
print to - look up the printDocument control documentation

Cheers

I used to be a developer for a company that did touch screen POS
systems for all kinds of restaurants including pizza and pizza with
delivery.

POS systems are not nearly as simple as many people believe. Not to be
too discouraging but out of quick service, fine dining and pizza,
Pizza is definitly the most difficult. Think very carefully about how
to handle pricing for the various pizza sizes, topping combinations
and special requests before beginning.

Umm..

I'm going to add to don's comment. I've also written POS software,
(resturaunt, never pizza) and well... Yes... Be VERY careful in your
planning, or else you may end up rewriting the system several times or it
never quite works as you want before you get frustrated and give up...

And thats never good...
