Hi all,,

Point of sale printed receipt contains a Order number (most upper right corner) which is generated to be unique based on the current time, I found the responsible javaScript function (generateUniqueId) under


The question is, how to change the order to start from 0 each session? is there any way to achieve this without changing the source code?

Found a solution.

I have defined a new variable at the top of the script var orderNo=0;, then changed the funcion to:

generateUniqueId: function() {
    return orderNo++;

Its silly, right!

"I have defined a new variable at the top of the script var orderNo=0 " ...where exactly...Got a blank screen after attempting to change this? Anyway to get this field from a sequence?

You should try to place the variable definition as the second line of the script..%

But the variable is set to 0 each time the POS reloads... ) : Could it be possible to import the current POS order number when pos interface is loaded in models.js to the orderNo variable so it takes off from the last order in the server??

Using something like this.... return self.fetch('pos.order', ['name']); }).then(function(pos){ OrderNo ..... .... ?? Someone?
