The dark mode beta is finally here. Change your preferences any time. Stack Overflow for Teams is a private, secure spot for you and your coworkers to find and share information. I am currently building a POS solution for my company. The hardest part is shopping for the cash drawer as I do not have much experience with them and would prefer a USB cash drawer. I have found a model I am interested in. This allows you to open the drawer etc using a dll file. An example of the codes given are like so:.
The issue I am having is that the solution is just effectively a website hosted offsite, what I need to be able to do is from the site issue commands to the client machine using it. So that when they complete a sale I can open the drawer for that particular machine. What I need to clarify is how I go about doing this. For example, I would assume I install the driver on the client machine and plug the cash drawer in. Then when they access the site I need to execute the C command shown above to open the drawer.
The problem i am having is wrapping my head around how this would work. Surely if I execute the command on the server it will effectively be looking at the servers usb ports and trying to open the drawer. Rather than issuing the command to the client machine. Therefore in order to work around this would it be possible to maybe have the c file on the clients machine and then I simply call a file on the site using something like.
I understand I don't have a lot of information to provide as I am trying to figure this out before going ahead with the purchase and I am probably over complicating this but any pointers or info would be most appreciated. Also I am not completely set on this model, so if you know an alternative with some good documentation or an existing solution, I am open to this also.
I could potentially install xampp and create a simple php files that calls an exe which does the necessary work. Therefore maybe accessing a local address on the client machine could be another potential idea ie My Website including the POS side of things is built and ready to go. This is built using PHP and is hosted on an external server. We access the site via a domain. The till drawer is the one listed above and it is connected via USB to the clients machine.
No receipt printer is used. It has it's caveatsyes, but chances are you may have luck and that the device can be opened with this. I've worked several years for a POS software company and both serial and usb cash drawers had a really really simple protocol that allowed us to open them even with FoxPro.
You would have to create a small chrome app that sends the command to open the drawer. This app should expose one function that could be called once you write the operation or commit the transaction to the server e. I have no experience with this. But you may be able to use JNI java native interface to call native code.
I'm not sure if the applet container is sandboxed in a way that does not allow you to do it, but these two links may come in handy:. Another option, and seems to be the easiest for me, is to map a keystroke at the OS level so that the combination executes certain command.
You can see here a description of how to do it in windows. In linux gnome and kde etc this is very easy. Once You did that, you could use this jQuery librarythat "simulates" keystrokes, so, again, when you receive your response that the transaction is done and that you need to open de cash drawer you'll want to callback a function that executes a simulation keystroke that you previsouly had configured as per the article I gave you.
But I'm sure is a standard interface so you can code that app easily in any language. Here's a good start for C.GitHub is home to over 40 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.

There is a CashDrawer sample. Thank you oldnewthingbut your sample doesn't work. Please connect a cash drawer. The Sample code I got works fine.
It is using Epson SDK. The code is actually sending a pulse command to the printer, and the printer opens the cash drawer. I was wondering, do you have a sample using your PointOfService API which can open this type of cash drawer connected to a printer?

I guess I didn't understand your original question. Your new question appears to be "The sample doesn't work for my cash drawer. I'll ask the CashDrawer people if they have any ideas. We're working on improving the cash drawer sample, which currently makes the assumption that the cash drawer is already paired with the system. You should be able to set up a pairing manually from the "Settings" App, "Devices" category, "Connected devices" tab. The sample will be updated to use DeviceWatcher with CashDrawer.
