1. Trying to write OPOS Line Display Service Object

I am a newbie in OPOS.

I am developing a service object for OPOS line display.
When trying to use it through the MonroeCS CO control
(OPOSLineDisplay.ocx, version OposCCOs-1_11_001),
Open gives code 104 (=OPOS_E_NOSERVICE), and
get_OpenResult() gives code 305 (=OPOS_OR_BADIF).

What these return codes really means ?

In Control Programmer's Guide
(OLE for Retail POS, Release 1.6)
this is said in page 18, item 5:
CLIP -->
... (This ensures that the Service Object supports at least the
minimum methods of a valid Service Object for the device class, before
calling any of its methods.)
CLIP <--

Do I have to do the event handling as well as all the methods ?

4. Initiating a OPOS DRIVER

5. Handling frozen OPOS driver

Hi All

I have a POS program (Windows app) . I am using 2005 Pro

The OPOS drivers freezes my program if Parallel port is configured for the 
Receipt printer and the Printer is not connected or is turned off
The freezing happens when I try to Claim the device e.g
mypos.claim(300) ***** Happens here if the driver cannot communicate with 
the Printer
mypos.enabled = True

There is no connection timeout on the Parallel printer driver for some 
strange reason and the POS program has to be crashed.
Serial and USB versions of the Driver timeout OK

Is there anyway to configure a timeout on the driver initialisation routine 
in my code, and to kill the driver after say 3 seconds, if the 
printer is not responding, so my program can continue to load.?


6. OPOS Driver is not working properly - Visual Basic/VB

7. OPOS DRIVER - to starting

I am in a project that aims to build a opos driver, a species of intermediary 
between application and opos devices that support the standard. The opos 
driver is divided in two parts: The Control Object(CO), that makes the 
interface with application and the Service Object(SO), that makes the 
interface with the devices. The CO makes methods calls in the SO. 
My problem is the following one: The CO are ActiveX controls(ocx) and SO are 
dlls. I am not knowing that type of project I must create in the Visaul c++ 
and how do I link the CO and the SO? I need them( ocx and dll) will be 
invisible at runtime. I would like that somebody help about that. Somekind of 
help is welcome. I wait reply! Grateful! Helio
