Hi, dzlee. There are many ways to accomplish what you're after. For simplicity, I would suggest the following:

  • In Excel, find the receipt template that best fits your needs and save it locally
  • Study the Excel functions in the help file, which will easily allow you to write to the template.

Try these suggestions out, and post your code if you get stuck; we'll be happy to assist.

You can do it also with RTF or PDF.

For RTF look in helpfile.

For PDF look in Wiki

dzlee,

Can you explain a bit more what exactly you are trying to do.  For example, are you looking to set up your own billing system for a restaurant? The more information we have the better we can advise you.

Wich printer do you plan to use and how do you collect and store billing information?

Since you consider printing now, you must have something already working. Can you show us the code, even to an MVP in PM?

Your code works for me, it prints out fine ... but the test.xlsx book must exist first.  What error are you getting?

Try this to see if you get an error (and add some error checking in general):

$oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($bill, @ScriptDir & "\test.xlsx")
if @error then MsgBox("","error",@error)

@dmob This example is awesome, thank you! :)

Now with the printMG I was able to set up a simple little script that allows me to print receipts while on the go with an 80 mm mobile bluetooth printer. The only problem I can't seem to get a handle on is manipulating the output.

As with most line printers, there are ESC/POS commands that allow for typical events, like opening a cash drawer, print upside-down and the like.

In my case, I'd like to change the print mode, so I can print with double-height, double-width or both.

According to the printer reference, I need to send the following command: ESC ! n, where n = 16 for double-height, 32 for double-width, etc.

Seems easy enough, but I struggle with sending the command. I've tried the following examples with quotes, without quotes, all to no avail.

_PrintText( $Prn Chr( 27) & Chr( 33) & 16 )

_PrintText( $Prn {ESC} & {!} & 16 )

send( Chr( 27) & Chr( 33) & 16 )

I'd be utterly grateful for any possible help or hint.

      Good morning, all. I am having a very hard time figuring out why my code "breaks" every second (and every time after) iteration in the loop. 
      I am trying to automate the process of filling out a form for work. I need to find and send data to seven fields and get data from one field. 
      Here are a couple of pictures of the fields I am interacting with. The fields are on the same forum/page. (the green boxed ones)
       


      Here is my code so far.

      That is not all the code but that is the function that keeps "breaking" and by "breaking" I mean the program acts like it doesn't know where the description field is after the first iteration.
      My code will just click somewhere in the far top left corner and somehow shrink the browser in the process of finding the description field.  
       
      The code works perfectly the first iteration but after that, it "breaks" (doesn't know where to click/send data to). 
      As always any help is greatly appreciated. 
       
      NOTE: By the time 'Action 16' runs Chrome has already been opened and has navigated to the proper webpage.  I am trying to loop 'Action 16' multiple times. I do not leave that webpage while looping.

      as always any help would be greatly appreciated. I know how hard you people hard. Thank you for taking the time to help us.

      I have this code and I want to control the size of the picture that is being showing on the GUI not matter how big the source of the picture is.
      To draw the picture you just add the x and y position, but I would like a end position too.

      Im creating a code that will work in this sequence:
      1. Copy the text (question) in one atea of the screen
      2. Catch the 2 strings (number)
      3. Multiply the 2 strings ( $1*$2)
      4. Click the next area to put the answer
      5. Paste the answer
       
      This is my code
       
      MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 479, 802, 3, 1) ;Clicking all of the text
      Send("^c") 
      $x = StringRegExpReplace(ClipGet(), 'What is (\d*) x (\d*) \?$', "$1*$2")
      MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 480, 844, 1, 1)
      ClipPut($x)
      Send("^v")
       
      However the output is this
      $1*$2
       
      How can I make it solve itself? Because I tried this code:
      MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 479, 802, 3, 1) ;Clicking all of the text
      Send("^c")
      MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 480, 844, 1, 1) $x = Execute(StringRegExpReplace(ClipGet(), 'What is (\d*) x (\d*) \?$', "$1*$2"))
      ClipPut($x)
      Send("^v")
      Output is just blank text
