ScriptX.Services

MeadCo's ScriptX.Add-on for Internet Explorer is the world's favourite Internet Explorer on Windows add-on to deliver the guarantee of consistent formatting and appearance of printed output on any local or networked printer, regardless of the printing attributes already set in that computer's browser.

The evolution is here

Whilst Internet Explorer continues to be a powerful corporate tool today's users connect to web apps with a variety of devices and modern browsers such as the Chrome and Edge browsers.

ScriptX.Services

ScriptX.Services is our evolution to providing developers with the tools for ensuring the consistent formatting and appearance of printed output regardless of the users device or modern browser.

Try the button above to receive a PDF of this page. This example is simple but the margins, the page header and footer and the paper orientation have been described in JavaScript and standard CSS used to remove some content for the print and layout the content appropriately. Notice that the date and time in the headers and footers are the time right now - the PDF was produced right now, it isn't a canned file.

This is the output from our cloud service `printing` using a print to PDF print driver.

 The result is output with consistent formatting and appearance regardless of the browser and its settings that you are using.

The same idea works with the service hosted not in the cloud but on your own network or on each individual Windows PC and you can print to paper/labels from any browser to any printer available on the network / PC.
