@emre, if i try to add a new custom keyboard automation command button WITH formatting i get the below error. If i dont add formatting and just add the automation command the button is blank as no formatting is set, but when pressed it behaves correctly. if i add any formatting such as button colour, header, font, size etc then the following error happens and samba closes

If i now try to add formatting to the “blank” button as i have to all my other custom keyboard buttons, when i click save i get the above error


SambaPOS 5.1.52 Release
#2

Hmm… Seems like you exceeded maximum allowed field size for Custom Keyboard value…


#3

thats thrown a spanner in the works, are you able to increase the size?


#4

I will. Until that you can gain few space by renaming <linebreak/>'s to <br/>'s.


#5

Brill, thanks a lot Emre :slight_smile:


#6

@RickH - that is out of control mate! :laughing: Love your work…


#7

LOL, that custom keyboard code looks absolutely insane.

Inner Exception 3
Type: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException
Message: String or binary data would be truncated.
The statement has been terminated.

Yep, the field in the database is too small for your keyboard code!


#8

We need a program to decipher his code! LOL I would go crazy trying to customize that especially if you want to change a specific button. Hopefully we can come up with improvement soon for you. Syntax highlight would be a start.


#9

Good idea!

Hmm… I wonder if we might be able to define Custom Keyboards in a section similar to Automation > Scripts, then in the field that RickH has shown above, you link to the “Keyboard Script”, via <handler>.<keyboard>


#10

Yeah… With V3 features became a rule… Now everything becomes scripts lol…

I’ve added {CALL:x} support for menu category’s custom keyboard setting.


#11

Ive not used the call and script features before could you give me an example of how it would work in the custom keyboard so i can replicate?

Im assuming i setup the scripts for each button and then just use {CALL:X} in the custom keyboard for each button?

So the custom keyboard settings would be something like

“{CALL:Discount}”,"{CALL:Price Change}" etc etc?


#12

Im no pro but my thoughts would be along the lines of something like this might make editing keyboard easier

function(keyboard 1) {
    var key1 = ' "<button code>", '
    var key2 = ' "<button code>", '
    var key3 = ' "<button code>", '
    var key4 = ' "<button code>", '
    
    var keyboard1 = key1+key2+key3+ key4
    
    response = keyboard1
}

Sure someone else can offer a ‘sexier’ option :slight_smile:


#13

Yes @JTRTech that’s the idea.

@RickH that will work on next update (.51)


#14

Depending on you use of variables I would probably add a bit of a layout diagram comment to help visualize it.

/*
Keyboard Keys Layout

|  KEY 1  |  KEY 2  |
|  KEY 3  |  KEY 4  |

*/

You could just dump the whole lot in but variables would defiantly help with amendments.
