Just completed a nice little application to help Freefoam staff print Guarantee Certificates and Address Labels.
The application was written in VB and uses a WebBrowser Control to display the online HTML based Certificates which are in turn generated using ColdFusion.
Each certificate contains META data which is polled by the VB app, de-serialized and transformed into a raster image which can be sent directly to a DYMO LabelWriter 400 Turbo printer. At the same time the label is printed, the HTML certificate is sent to a Colour HP Printer.
The user can enter a Certificate number and the correct certificate loaded in the browser control.
The application runs in the system tray and is instantly available for use by double-clicking the task tray icon.
Small App but one that was fun to write and saves a hell of a lot of time to the client.....
