asked on

ASP -> SL

Hi Experts

I have an ASP page that prints using a third party printing object through its designer, but wondered if i can do this in a SL4? If so what can i do with existing code to transfer in SL.

I have attached the code and 2 screenshots - one of the page and the printed label just to show how the ASP works

Thanks

What type of "third party printing object" are you using (ActiveX, C++, ...)?

We use a designer called TFormer and thats where i create the label, then the names(values) on label is used in code and then the dll is added to solution and i use the objects from that to help do printing, to get the repo name, form name etc.

these are the fields on label and in asp(see attachment)...
          Job.RepositoryName = "<%=TFormerRepository%>"
          Job.ProjectName = "<%=RS("LabelProject")%>"
          Job.FormName = "<%=RS("LabelType")%>"
          Job.PrinterName = ""
          JobData.AddNewRecord() // add a new record. Each record prints the Detail Band of the form
          Jobdata.SetDataField "PartNumber","<%=RS("PartNumber")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "SerialNumber","<%=RS("Serial")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "CustomerSerialNumber","<%=RS("CPN")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "CustDesc","<%=REPLACE(RS("CustomerDesc"),CHR(34),"")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "WWNumber","<%=RS("WWN")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "COO","<%=RS("COO")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "Model","<%=RS("SmartModel")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "WorkOrder","<%=RS("WorkOrder")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "CPN","<%=RS("CustomerModel")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "Revision","<%=RS("CustomerRev")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "Firmware","<%=RS("Firmware")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "Capacity","<%=RS("Capacity")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "Interface","<%=RS("Interface")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "DOM","<%=RS("DOM")%>"


Thanks
I haven't heard of TFormer, but if it is ActiveX, you need to do something special to work with ActiveX, such as creating an HTML page, with a reference to the ActiveX control.

I could get TFormer working myself its just the rest of the code in the asp page i want to use in SL if its possible.

Would it be possible to use/modify code into SL?

i mean tformer not a problem(designer & dll), the"rest of the code" what i have shown you can it be easily re-engineered in SL?

so i can basically use this in the xaml.cs(obviously modified for c#)....

// db connection here

<%IF Len(SerialNumber) > 1 THEN
        SQL="EXECUTE wsp_PrintSSDProductLabel '" & SerialNumber  & "'"
        'RETURNS : Plant,WorkOrder,Serial,WWN,CPN,CustomerRev,DOM,PartNumber,CustomerModel,CustomerDesc,SmartModel,Capacity,Interface,Firmware,Coo,LabelType,LabelProject,PrintFlag

        RS.Open(SQL)
                'Print Labels
        Sub PrintLabel()
          set Job = window.TF.CreateJob()
          set JobData = Job.NewJobDataRecordSet()
          TF.License "Modular Technologies, Inc.",3,2,"A34AB63D4F7CAFD40E6969220DDC9"
         Job.RepositoryName = "<%=TFormerRepository%>"
         Job.ProjectName = "<%=RS("LabelProject")%>"
          Job.FormName = "<%=RS("LabelType")%>"
          Job.PrinterName = ""
          JobData.AddNewRecord() // add a new record. Each record prints the Detail Band of the form
          Jobdata.SetDataField "PartNumber","<%=RS("PartNumber")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "SerialNumber","<%=RS("Serial")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "CustomerSerialNumber","<%=RS("CPN")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "CustDesc","<%=REPLACE(RS("CustomerDesc"),CHR(34),"")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "WWNumber","<%=RS("WWN")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "COO","<%=RS("COO")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "Model","<%=RS("SmartModel")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "WorkOrder","<%=RS("WorkOrder")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "CPN","<%=RS("CustomerModel")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "Revision","<%=RS("CustomerRev")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "Firmware","<%=RS("Firmware")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "Capacity","<%=RS("Capacity")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "Interface","<%=RS("Interface")%>"
          Jobdata.SetDataField "DOM","<%=RS("DOM")%>"

          Job.PrintForm()

        End Sub
The code looks pretty straightforward, with lines to set properties, and call the PrintForm method.

What does NewJobDataRecordSet represent in this line?

set JobData = Job.NewJobDataRecordSet()

Open in new window

   

Is it an ADO classic Recordset object?

yes it an ADO classic Recordset object, but i think i know what ive to do should be striaght foward, just wanted someone's opinion about taking asp to SL, but your right its just .net code, i was thinking SL would need to have something similar in xaml to asp.

yeah ok, once i get the dll into SL project this should be fine (but also refereing to other post about tformer dll), will update asap.

Added a SL class library and created classes for the third party dll to be written in C# code for the purposes of printing with SL.

This is what i had to do to get third party printing dll that was written in .net to be able to work within SL
