Printing from Kiosk mode / web app
« on: June 01, 2009, 11:26:50 AM »
I have 3 questions.  First, can I allow a user to print from the kiosk mode?  Second can I use the kiosk mode to display a interactive web application that allow them to select jpeg's and print them on a receipt printer hooked to the computer?  What standards does the player support as far as web applications go?  (ie html, ajax, javascript, etc.)

The answers are Yes, Yes and ... Flex.

Basically, it's up to you to develop anything you want ( i.e.: Kiosk in your case ).
We support Adobe Flex ( which you can print from ) or HTML technologies (Javasctipt , HTML, Flash etc ).

So, you can develop any of the requirements using these prog languages.

Watch here:

Under Advanced > Kiosk
and
Advanced > Modules

Always glad to help,

That's great, I have a website that has a print button on it, using javascript, normally when you click it, it activates the print dialog.  When I view the site through the AirPlayer no print dialog come up.  Do you have any suggestions for the best way for a web app to print when running in the air player?  Ideally it would just print and no print dialog would appear. 

FYI I'm not a programmer, however I do have a good understanding of basic programming techniques and am trying to get an idea of what to tell my developers to build.  Thanks!

In order for you to print you will need to develop a small application using Adobe Flex which uses the Print class.
You can import the generate swf to our system and print from it.
