Pos for .Net (.Net Core) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am planning to start a platform independent POS application.

    Will the current Pos for .Net (1.14) version work with the .Net Core 2.0 frame work (eg: OSX, Linux, Windows etc) ?

    or Is it available in future?

  • Hi Elias Ulahannan,

    Thank you for posting here.

    For your question, POS for .NET 1.14 is a class library that enables POS developers to apply Microsoft .NET technologies in their products. If you want it to suitable for .net core 2.0, you could post what you want in UserVoice for Microsoft. And then give the link back, we will vote it to cause attention.

  • POS for .NET 1.14 and more recently POS for .NET 1.14 1 require Windows and .NET Framework 4.0 or later as stated in system requirements.

    Please see the earlier reply that POS for .NET 1.14 and more recently POS for .NET 1.14.1 require Windows and .NET Framework 4.0 or later as stated in the system requirements found at https://aka.ms/p4dn-dl.

  • Thanks Terry,

    I'm trying to wrap my brain around what this actually is.  Were using the latest version of VS2017 and have built out own POS application for retail.  We have these small HP POS displays that have a front facing customer display which is 2x20 and I wanted to know how to program to that display from within our UWP app.  But it looks like POS for .NET isn't compatible with UWP apps.  Within UWP there is LineDisplay sample app which I'm going to check out and wondering if it's the same (just the UWP version) .

  • Henry,

    It is probably better to create a new thread since this is a different topic from the original, but also there are more appropriate forums for UWP questions than this.  In the future, I would suggest either of the following forums:

    You can use the Windows.Devices.PointOfService.LineDisplay API in your UWP application to control a 2x20 customer facing display.  It does require OPOS with the appropirate OPOS Service Object for your line display to work.  I suggest that you start with our Line Display sample application on GitHub.

  • terry,

    Is Windows.Devices.PointOfService.LineDisplay API  and the POS for .NET v1.14 SDK the same thing?  I've got the Line Display sample up and running on a regular desktop without a line display.  If I deploy this sample on the all in one that has the small display, will this app find and read the display text?

  • Harry, 

    No Windows.Devices.PointOfService is a Windows API Namespace whereas POS for .NET is a .NET Class library add-on to Windows.

    Assuming you are using the UWP Sample for Line Display, it should work on the all-in-on after you install OPOS and the OPOS Service Object for the line display from the manufacturer.

  • The UWP sample, though it doesn't work, looks like it uses Windows.Devices.PointOfService which means it is not using POS for .NET?   This is still confusing to me. 

    I've installed the OPUS driver and see it in my registry under the OLEforRetail-ServiceOPOS-LineDisplay section.  What is the OPUS Service Object?  and where could I check to verify that I've got it hooked up correctly?

    Appreciate any assistance.

  • Harry,

    There is a separate thread on your topic in the UWP forum.  Lets close this out and move further communication to the appropriate forum.
