Control to send Purhcased Items on Web POS to Local Printer

I need to have a COM Object or some Active X component created to finish up my project

ok here is my sitiuation I have a

point of sale system that I have built that works over the internet using vb.net / MS SQL I am trying to finish it up and the only thing I really have left is the receipt printer

after a sale is made I have a button that saves the receipt in SQL as a record with all the items purchased

the problem is that when a button is clicked on the screen I need to have it trigger the receipt printer to print out a copy of the receipt / kick out the cash drawer and so on

so far with registry entry changes on the local machine and with the help of a batch file I have it set up so I can click a link (on the receipt page hosted on the server) from the local machine which triggers a bat file that prints txt files that are on the local machine and kicks out the drawer and cuts the paper the only problem I have been having now is how can I get the items purchased to the printer

some options that I have thought of so far are

1. make the server save a txt file to the local machine with the items purchased and have the bat file print that out also


2. send which items were purchased as variables to the batch file

with option 1 I can't find a way to save the txt file to the local machine without human interaction or with out prompts coming up and with option 2 the limitations on how long a variable for a bat file look like it might be a problem because I need to have it dynamically change the number of lines that are used


So getting to the Question

what would be the best way to get a string like

Order # 17845


More Stuff......................$16.95

to my receipt printer


I really like the idea of the two ways above if I could just work around the problems then it would work

Please feel free to contact me with any questions

I may be missing something... Basically all you need for your system to work is to write a text file that the bat file can print out, correct? That is very easy and requires no interaction. One very simple sub right Mere
