1. PointTerminal
This section describes the interface between Point payment terminals using PointTerminal.
PointTerminal is an ActiveX control for application implementation in the Windows XP (32-bit)
environment, developed and supported by Point A/S, and its main purpose is to simplify the
interface to the SMASH/XENTA terminal, and comply with the PBS OTRS 2.5 specifications.
PointTerminal ActiveX interface handles the certification requirements regarding:
Populate and display terminal dialog-interfaces.
Enabling the user to abort a transaction.
Handles advanced issues like “verify signature” and “advice transfer flag”.
Handles token transactions e.g. Original Authorization transaction
Can optionally do the receipt printings.
Implements an optional transaction preresult callback to ensure the application is alive.
PointTerminal includes a method that can call user selected administrative functions.
In addition PointTerminal also include a management method that supports all administrative
functions available in the terminal.
The objective for PointTerminal is to give the ECR access to do the basics:
Make different types of transactions.
Handle administrative functions e.g. to do the “end of day” settlement.
Create reports
Handle printing and backup of receipts

PointTerminal OCX Side 7 . With the addition of a stronger typelib from version 2. The Control part is controlled by the user ECR application through the methods. Interface The ActiveX control communicates with the user ECR application using a dispatch map and a number of methods and an event interface. the extra receipt information (‘binary receipt’) is only transmitted from the terminal if configured to transmit the extra overhead information.
