Imprimir documentos com o Glide

Há alguma maneira de usar o Glide com impressora local? Por exemplo, imprimir um relatório na impressora da minha empresa.

I made a daemon process in C # (the video is in Spanish because I did it for the Latin Glide Community). It is just a sample.

Advantages:

  • It is a program made from scratch, it can be adapted and do whatever you want (not just print).
  • There is no monthly service fee.

Gracias Wilder. Fantástico
Works only with Google sheets or also with Glide tables??

Por el momento con Google Sheets, hasta que Glide saque una API o un conector a Glide Tables

Hola @wjcv06

Trato de entender que hace tu ejecutable pero no lo consigo :face_with_head_bandage:

Tu programa levanta un web socket y escucha/espera un dato desde tu GS para imprimir la data que recibe?

O lee constantemente tu GS buscando datos nuevos para imprimirlos?

Gracias de antemano

Hola @gvalero lo único que hace es estar a la espera de que se inserte un nuevo registro.
Captura los datos para imprimirlos y luego Actualiza una columna para que ya no lo tome en cuenta la próxima vez.

Gracias pero sigo intentando llegar al fondo :wink:

O sea, si “está a la espera” …quién le escribe ese dato: la GS?

Y si tu GS está escribiendo datos, tu programa está trabajando como un servidor web escuchando peticiones a través de un puerto TCP/UDP… es así?

:raised_back_of_hand:Wait a minute… I am remembering an old Action called Sharing Options which was able to open the device’s share panel, allowing any APP to use other options and share your content via other external apps. One of these external apps could be iPhone’s AirPrint to print any document:

but checking the current available actions, the Sharing Options was removed and it’s almost a tragedy :woozy_face:

Please @PabloMFalero or @SantiagoPerez, can you confirm if this option was removed officially? Otherwise, there is a big bug here and the Glide’s documentation needs to be updated.

Gracias muchachos!

Might be part of this bug, but I think it should be “Share Link”

I believe it was renamed to Share Link.

let me try!

I found screenshot, but that works for me :wink:

Right!

Its newer name is Share Link and shows this when it is pressed from APP directly:

instead, if you press share icon image from Safari, you can have more options/apps but the Printer option is not available. What is the reason for it?

How difficult would it be to achieve this functionality?

I’m not an Apple guy, so just guessing here. I’m guessing that Share Link is only sharing a specific piece of text (like a clipboard), so apple doesn’t expect you to print??? I suppose when you use the image button, you are sharing the entire page and contents, which is something people would normally print.

Si pudieras imprimirlo creo que lo único que imprimiría sería un texto plano

El programa en C# utiliza la API de Google para conectarse a la GoogleSheet, traigo esos datos para trabajarlos en el sistema así puedo hacer lo que quiera con esos datos (en este caso, imprimir dichos datos en una estructura simple). Luego el mismo programa escribe en la google sheet.

De hecho podrías tener el mismo programa conectado a una BD MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle, etc. e intercambiar datos con la GoogleSheet, convirtiendo tu aplicación de Glide en un híbrido de front y back end
