I start 7.1Jx, enter a name, inv#, page#, I then enter a valid stock number and hit [Enter], it shows "INVALID STOCK NUMBER!!!!!" error message at the bottom of the blue list box at the lower right. If i go ahead and just hit enter again...

Re: New RECEIVE.EXE feature.

Dale, it seems broken to me. When i get to the screen to enter stock #, I enter a valid stock# but it bleeps and says its invalid. If i use the f1 lookup, it cant find by stock number, if i f1 lookup by description it will find the first item on text match but then if I hit Esc and then Enter to add...

Re: VFD450E Pole Displays

Just for further testing, instead of the "UK" character set have you tried the "US set"? How about "Multingual International font sets"? In desperation, try any others?
Any Difference in output among them?

Re: Pole display using a monitor - New

Got it. Love it. Everyone has made Bruce happy! Small, I think the norton peeps don't trust you website. You can go here to talk to them about it. https://submit.symantec.com/false_positive/insight/?w=1 If they don't fix it, *then* go for the 2.5 (I'd irc chat but the java app page isn't working for...

Small, My norton AV says its suspicious of this file downloaded from madpricer and deleted it! I guess I'll have to wait for dale to compile and put on keyhut site.

Re: VFD450E Pole Displays

Dave, Have you tried testing if it displays text properly from the DOS prompt? Need to make sure this works before going forward. Open a DOS prompt (cmd window). Assuming your display is attached to COM1 (if your display is attached to a different COM port, change accordingly) type the following com...

Re: Random Characters When Reviewing Transactions

Over about 6yrs of using various versions of dhpos i too have seen this happen. Doesn't matter if its an upgraded and fresh install. I never found a way to re-create anything repeatable that would help dale track it down. The only thing consistent is that it does not happen in 'sales' type transacti...

Re: Pole display using a monitor - New

Hey Dale, I'm liking the BigPoleQ5 program! Most notable is the [TAB] quick start feature. Very nice ; ) (maybe posconfg will get this option soon). Exiting the program though seems to require more work than necessary. To close, I've already hit [Esc] > [7] > [Enter]. Why do I then need to hit the A...

Re: Pole display using a monitor - New

Dale, I just DL the bigpoleq.zip file. You need to re-zip the files associated with BigPoleQ http://keyhut.com/bigpoleq.zip to have long file names. All the file names in the ZIP are DOS 8.3 which doesn't work. Even if you run BIGPOL~1.EXE it still can't resolve the short names of the DLL files. Fil...

Re: HELP!!!!

Looks like your missing the main register configuration file for your register. You need to search for a file named CASINO.POS. If its gone, and can't be found in the recycle bin/trash, then you need to checkout some 3rd party un-delete tool to see if it can be recovered from your hard drive.

Re: Pole display using a monitor - New

Dale: I tried BPQ4 with better results. BPQ4 did solve the screen real estate issues. The layout and screen sizes are nicely done. And the processor time is down to 20% while nothing is happening with DHPOS. But as soon as there is any key press the BPQ4 resources goes up to 80%. This delay first oc...

Re: Pole display using a monitor - New

Until QB64 catches up to comprehend the 20 year old concept of an 'OS window' (like minimize, maximize, restore, hide, show, roll-up, un-roll, getfocus), BigPole is still forced to be an ugly workaround on modern h/w. Here's an iDear; The stage coach got us across the US territories, so lets strap r...

Re: Pole display using a monitor - New

Dale: I'm not sure what the testing tax thing is about. But with BPQ3 i don't see a difference. Here is a screen shot of BPQ3 on the 7in Mimo. The bottom is still cut off when moved to the Mimo. Also I noticed that if you right click BPQ3 in the process explorer and choose "Maximize", the BPQ3 windo...
