I’ve been asked to integrate receipt printing for a software I’ve been developing and the thermal printer my client uses is a very cheap one ordered from eBay for $36.31. There are more developer friendly feature rich printers available but they are very expensive. Who wants to use a expensive printer when the customers will throw away the receipt anyway? UPDATE: After seeing the feature set of the more expensive Epson printer, I do think that anyone who wishes to have receipts printed, should use a feature rich printer. Some even have color printing capabilities.
Recently (Not so long ago, more like 10 mins ago) my asked me to automatically redirect the user to the login screen after session is expired. I googled it, found 2 ways. One works well with NON-AJAX websites and it is the simplest.
If you are making a site like facebook, then using the above method would cause number of users to decrease from 1 billion to 0. Why? because this method counts only full page refreshes, not ajax requests.
Recently I was tasked with implementing the following scenario. In short,Customer has a list of contacts
I already have developed the customer Add/Update screen with around 20 or something customer related input fields. New task was to plug a table inside this screen to display existing contacts and also with the ability to add new ones.
Just to give you an idea on how the UI looks like. Refer the following image.
Seems simple enough. And when I click on "Add Customer" and that small pencil icon, following UIs pops up.
