Scrolling Receipt Request Message (Tran Type 36-10)
Simplify supports a Scrolling Receipt Request message from the POS process. If Simplify receives this message, it responds by displaying the data sent in the request. There are currently two types of supported data: item data and a running order total. There is no Response message.
After a Scrolling Receipt Request message is sent, the only message types that can be processed next are additional Scrolling Receipt Request messages or a Scrolling Receipt Stop message.
If additional Scrolling Receipt Request messages are sent, the additional item data will be appended to the existing item data display and the running total will be updated with the most recent total. If the item data will not all fit on the screen, the oldest item data will not be displayed.
The display of scrolling receipt data is terminated by sending a Scrolling Receipt Stop message (36-11). When the PIN Pad receives this message, it will display the Idle screen. The PIN Pad will then be available to process messages as usual.
