Creating Run Pages in Touchscreen Codes

Counterpoint’s Touchscreen Ticket Entry allows you to define functions of certain buttons, but did you know that you can create one button that performs multiple actions? This function is called a run page.
A few reasons you might use a run page are:
  • To add multiple items to a transaction with one button touch
  • Change the line type, then add an item, then add a discount with one button push
  • Open the enter customer window, select a paycode, and complete the transaction with one button push

Create a New Page of Buttons

***Before you begin editing touchcodes, either back up or create a copy of the touchcodes. ***
A run page uses a page of buttons that contain all the actions you want one button push to complete.
1. On the Buttons tab, click New Page
2. Enter the name for the new page (it is a best practice to make the name meaningful)
3. A page of blank buttons now appears, select one of the buttons to configure that button
4. Below is an example of a button page with multiple items that will be used in the run page

Best Practices for Run pages

  • Run pages run through the whole page of buttons. All buttons on the run page will be used.
  • Run pages run through buttons from top to bottom, left to right. Items at the top of the button page will be pressed before buttons below.
  • Test often during setup. Make sure that your first few steps work in a run page before you add more.

Create a Button for the Run Page

1. Select a button
2. Fill in the button configuration:
3. Click Preview

Testing a Run Page

Once you have completed the configuration, it is a best practice to test the run page in Touchscreen Ticket Entry. This ensures that the button with multiple functions performs as you expect.
  1. Select Point of Sale → Tickets → Touchscreen Ticket Entry
  2. Select the Run Page Button
  3. Verify that all steps run
