Hi Todd, One thing that is REALLY missing is a widget to print from Android - specifically Receipt printers preferably via bluetooth and via Wifi - both for people out and about on business, either having a portable printer. It seems google cloudprint doesnt have any reciept printers (epson/star/Fujitsu using the epson ESC protocol) on its list of supported printers. So I am using 8 inch Windows 10 tablets for ease of use - the customers don't care but I do. I also attach a printer to a windows tablet with an app running on the tablet waiting for the information to print from the Android tablet .
There are two ways of doing it that I can see. 1 - An app that is installed on the android tablet that you invoke with a pdf of what needs to be printed - Worldwide developer market for that - just look at stackoverflow -- which could bring new people into the fold. 2. A widget priced on two levels with or without source although I would open source this (but still charge - any developer who wouldn't pay for it should be shot at dawn without a last meal) because many people will add to the printers supported. If you can't or won't then charge extra for the source code , cos as sure as eggs is eggs it will need to be tweaked. The other important widget is that for the Beacons which is on your list - If you can give access to the low level routines in the widget - or even create a script only stack that would mean more flexibility so we can "override" certain defaults - unless you've thought of everything ;-) Thanks and good luck Regard Lagi On 22 February 2018 at 11:38, Todd Fabacher via use-livecode <email@example.com> wrote: > Thanks...But nobody gave any suggestions???? > > > Roger Eller wrote: do you mean it should work on ANY of the > "LiveCode-supported" platforms, both desktop and/or mobile? > > --Honestly, our main focus will be mobile at first, but our goal is all > platforms.
