Creating a POS (point of sales) system

Posted 15 December 2011 - 02:01 PM

Hi All,

I have just finished college and I am awaiting my exam date. I have created some desktop applications for my portfolio, but now I want to create a Point of Sales (POS) system to add to the list.

I notice in supermarkets and various shops that POS systems use touch screen monitors to interact with the program.

My first question is, do I need to use different code or controls in my applications so they can be used with touch screen monitors.

I have created an application for hotels for booking rooms (not for a client, just as a demo project), but if there is anyone out there who could give me some pointers on how to create the POS system I would be very greatful.

I will be doing some research and I will start designing some controls over the next few days. I am looking forward to getting this project started.

Thanks in advance

John

You need a Database first.
Then a clean, simple GUI.
Then fast, clean code.
A means of POS software distribution.
But in the meantime - what have you come up with?

Nothing just yet, I will create the database using SQL Server 05, as you say a clean and simple User Interface is needed I have an idea for that design wise.

I will come up with some stuff over the next few days.
