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++, ...)?

razza_bAuthor Commented:
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")%>"

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?

Bob LearnedCommented:
I am not sure what you mean by "the rest of the code"...I don't think that you can use ASP classic code in Silverlight, unmodified, so you would need to re-engineer as .NET code.

razza_bAuthor Commented:
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

Bob LearnedCommented:
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?

razza_bAuthor Commented:
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.
0
 
Bob LearnedCommented:
This wouldn't be XAML, since that is declarative definition for a control.  That code would need to go in the code-behind xaml.cs file.  .NET can work with ADO classic Recordset object, if that is what the TFormer control uses.  This should be achievable in Silverlight, if that is all you are looking for.

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.

razza_bAuthor Commented:
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
