In Topic: barcode / pro4 interface

 we use an old version of pro4 , green screen only.  [ Version : 4.6000  Revision : 2.1.3 ] .


I know the system is old, but we are able to interface with nodejs to get data for sales graphs on html5 screens.   So I hope we will  be able to deal with text data going to and from the device.


 Could you tell me about the device?


 And possibly we could talk about hiring your company to help us get set up?

Hello Charlie


 that is an interesting project . 


 when the customer takes inventory  is a bar code reader used?   If so how do you get data to and from pro4?


 what we are trying to do is set up a system to control our spare machine parts and motors.

Version 7 does not support 'Green Screen' and Aurora has to be run through a browser. Why would anybody want 'Green Screens' in 2012?

We have a bread factory. In the plant we've 12+- green screens.

At the 3 packaging machines the screens for 2 shifts need just one pro4 screen program. The operator types in the product code and then the program displays the different ways that product needs to be packaged.

In the bakery department there are a few screens, which the bakers use to determine what to make.

All of those pc's running cli could boot ltsp and then using ubuntu start a browser and display the same program.

But cli is simpler and does just what we need.

Exporting to spreadsheet format is a very attractive feature.

When you wrote "development is done using the Windows Client" I assume you mean 'Pro4 Client' ? As most of our desktops use Ubuntu or Debian .

I've some more questions ,

Regarding licensing count:: if a user has more then one browser tab or window opened, does that count for one license used or multiple ?

Would be able to use putty or other command line connections to use green screen?
