Our samples system illustrates printing HTML from a variety of sources and in a variety of scenarios. The samples can be configured to use ScriptX.Services for On Premise Devices - and so you can test a local network installation of ScriptX.Services for On Premise Devices by using the samples.
By default the samples will use ScriptX.Services On Cloud to provide the print service.
This means you require ZERO install to view and test with the samples.
Navigate to the samples system.
Now click gear to display the Print Provider Settings panel.
Check the option ‘Cloud / On Premise’.
Click ‘Reset to default’ to use the url for the MeadCo Cloud Service.
Click ‘Use this server’ to test the server and if successful, as shown with a , all samples will use the server.
The server you have configured will be remembered the next time you use the samples system. Use ‘Reset to default’ to revert to the default server for the ScriptX.Services type.
You can now use any of the samples to test the behaviour of ScriptX.Services for Cloud.
An excellent place to start is the Basic print features sample with prompted print. Click the Print .. button to start the print and then verify that the drop down list of printers contains all the printers available to the cloud service (Print to PDF).
The MeadCo ScriptX.Services print client modules are available for download from ScriptX.Services Client Library - where information on the various package forms is also provided.
A quick reminder of how easy it is to add controlled and consistent printing to your apps:
