How to customize check out transaction receipt and include all checked out items? (v3.0)

Starting from version 3.0 you can include all checked out items in the customized receipt.

There are two new keywords that let you display all transaction items:
<LIST_START>
<LIST_END>


library custom receipt, include all items

Custom receipt is defined in the prt_receipt.txt file.

Handy Library checks if there is a receipt file (prt_receipt.txt) in the data folder (C:\handy_lib\data\db\), if yes then custom receipt is created, if the file is not present the regular receipt is created.

Download the prt_receipt.txt file, modify it, and save it in the data folder (C:\handy_lib\data\db\).

Use keywords:
<LIBRARY:TITLE> library main items table + item field name
<LIB_COPIES:BARCODE> copies table + copy field name
<BORROWERS:NAME> borrowers table + borrower field name
<LOAN:LOANDATE> loan transaction table + loan field name


Keywords in the form are replaced with data from the check out transaction.



Question: Add text to check out receipt. We need to add a disclaimer and signature field to the check out report so it can be printed and have the borrower sign it. Where can I enter this information?

Answer: Review instructions how to create a custom receipt.
