Printing options

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Member entry system. Various standard end of day type reports, print controlled through the media type option/css etc.

A requirement is to print labels for people who come in. So there's a 'payment' screen, and when the entry is processed, we want to take the name, member no, date say, and print it on a label. Label printer is a standard printer, no problem if it was a winform app, but how do we do this in MVC? Must ba a fairly common requirement, it's just like printing a form? I can't really find any info on this sort of printing from an MVC app.

Any ideas/pointers?

Bluetooth Printing Guide using Windows Mobile Pocket Pc

FieldSoftware Products printing products use the Bluetooth "Serial Port Profile" (SPP). Unfortunately, there is no standard method to find your Bluetooth printer and begin printing... each device contains a Bluetooth stack/driver that determines the steps. There are two main stacks currently available... one from Microsoft and one from WIDCOMM/Broadcom. Below are step-by-step instructions for printing with the Microsoft and WIDCOMM stacks. Note that these may change for different versions of the Bluetooth stacks or for different manufacturers. Consult the documentation for your device for specific details on your device.

Identifying your device''s Bluetooth stack: There is no sure steps to identify a Bluetooth stack on a device. Below are steps for identifying current WIDCOMM and Microsoft stacks at the time this page is published. Note that these may not identify earlier or later versions of the same BT stacks.

What Do the Different Printer Options using Windows Mobile Pocket Pc

Select Printer Options:
bullet Printer: Select the printer to print to. Some printer selections work for a variety of printers, such as the "HP PCL" selection which prints to most Hewlett Packard DeskJet, LaserJet and compatible printers.
bullet Port: Select between Infrared, Bluetooth, Network printing and Serial (COM1-COM8). Most Windows CE devices only have Infrared and COM1 and need special attachments to use the other selections. USB printing and printing across an ActiveSync connection to a desktop printer is not supported.
NOTE: On many Pocket PC devices, you CANNOT use the serial and infrared ports at the same time. This means that if your device is connected to your desktop PC using the serial Sync cable, the Infrared port will not work. You must disconnect the serial connection to use Infrared printing.
bullet Color/Mono: Select Monochrome (Black & White) if your printer is not a color printer (or if you wish to print in mono). If your printer has color capabilities AND has a black ink capability, select "4-Color CMYK". If your printer cannot hold both color ink and black ink at the same time, select "3-Color CMY".
bullet Paper Size: Select paper size for use. You can choose "Custom" and then set special paper sizes in the "Custom Paper" Width and Height boxes. For printers that use "roll" paper, you can set a maximum paper height of 22 inches.

Replacement options for Membership


Hi everyone,
     I tried to use Microsoft's Membership option for signing up new users and authenticating them on subsequent pages, but it has not worked very well. The biggest issue has been with the REMEMBER ME function. With this checked, I am randomly logged out in the middle of some functions and some pages always show me as not authenticated, while others properly show me as authenticated. I built a site based on VB.
I was wondering what other people are using ro register users and monitor authentication and also if anyone has had better experiences with other solutions.

Printing crystal report from webservice



I am trying to print crystal repot directly from a C# application, which is calling webservice. I am able to display report in crystalreportviewer by passing the webservice call to datasource. However, is there anyway, I can print directly without showing the report?

Alternatively, I was trying return ReportDocument object from webservice, which would solve my problem, but I was unable to return the ReportDocument because of serialization issue. Is it even possible? Thank you

Instrumentation: Powerful Instrumentation Options in .NET Let You Build Manageable Apps with Confide


As systems grow and become more heterogeneous, so their complexity increases. The more code you write, the more that can go wrong. The more that can go wrong, the more you need a good instrumentation policy. In this article, the author looks at the various technologies available in the .NET Framework, such as tracing, logging, WMI, EIF, which are designed to help you. He will also look at the pitfalls you should avoid and provide you with the fundamentals from both a technical and managerial perspective so that you can instrument your code effectively.

ASP.NET: Nine Options for Managing Persistent User State in Your ASP.NET Application


ASP.NET provides many different ways to persist data between user requests. You can use the Application object, cookies, hidden fields, the Session or Cache objects, and lots of other methods. Deciding when to use each of these can sometimes be difficult. This article will introduce the aforementioned techniques and present some guidelines on when to use them. Although many of these techniques existed in classic ASP, best practices for when to use them have changed with the introduction of the .NET Framework. To persist data in ASP.NET, you'll have to adjust what you learned previously about handling state in ASP.

Printing: Preview and Print from Your Windows Forms App with the .NET Printing Namespace


Printing is an integral part of every complete Windows-based application. Providing robust printing capabilities in these applications has often proved to be a tedious chore. Now, printing from Windows Forms with the .NET Framework means you must adopt a document-centric approach, resulting in cleaner and more manageable code. While the System.Windows.Forms namespace provides seamless integration with all the standard print dialogs (such as Print Preview, Page Setup, and Print), the System.Drawing.Printing namespace offers numerous classes for extensibility and customization. These classes, and how they provide access to printing capabilities, are covered here. Other useful techniques, such as printing in the background to allow the user to continue other tasks, is also explained.

Web Security: Part 2: Introducing the Web Application Manager, Client Authentication Options, and Pr


This article, the second of two parts, continues coverage of Web security for Windows. It introduces the Web Application Manager in IIS that allows Web processes to be isolated, decreasing the security risk associated with running in a logon session. The article then picks up where Part One left off-it discusses authentication methods such as basic authentication, digest authentication, integrated Windows authentication, and anonymous logons, and the benefits and drawbacks of each.

so many data access options, what to use ?


I always have used Enterprise Library DAAB with stored procedures for data access with 4 seprate layers (presentation layer, custom types layer, business logic layer and data access layer).

My feeling is that this development approach wasts much time.

I have not worked with other ways of accessing data but sure there are many ways that save development time. While searching I read about these:

  1. Data Adapters they generate whole DAL with stored procedures
  2. Linq with different flavers
  3. Entity Framework
  4. Using data controls like SQLDataSource and Dynamic Data
  5. Other mappers, code generaters and utilities

So much options and my little knowledge, I am confused in making decision what development patern I should adopt considering that my development may be fast, extendable, re-usable and up to the standard. Also I want to go for a way in which my code libraries can be used with other technolgies like silverlight, mvc framework, services if I ever need to use.

Kindly guide me and help.
