Hi Patrick-

Thanks for catching that! I forgot to add an error check to see if the autoscale parameter had been set in the config – I was assuming it would be. I’ll add a quick patch and re-release ASAP.

I’d love to start testing this out, but I ran into a Runtime Error with AS after installing it.

Getting a “No value set for config parameter: container_management_labels_autoscale” message.

This was installed on a fairly clean and new installation of 1.5.1. Any ideas why this might happen? It’s calling out an issue in line #47.

Hi All-

I've released a beta version of the label printing plugin I've been talking about here: https://github.com/dartmouth-dltg/container_management_labels/releases/tag/v1.0-beta-1  You'll want to rename the download to remove the "-1.0-beta-1" suffix before adding it to your plugins directory. It's a beta release, so *don't* use it with production data!

Please give the ReadMe (https://github.com/dartmouth-dltg/container_management_labels/blob/master/README.md) a good look through to get a feel for what the plugin does and how to set it up. I'm happy to answer any questions about setup and use.

As it says on the tin, this will require some assembly for new label types - mainly CSS work to define the label sizes and layouts. Hopefully, the CSS for the two included label types will help to give people a roadmap on how to setup new label types. Depending on how useful this turns out, it might be worthwhile thinking about a group repository of label types/CSS so that people don't have to reinvent the wheel.

Please give the plugin a spin and report any issues that you find. If you do run into issues, please include the AS version (though its 1.5.1+ at this point due to the changes in the locations that have been added), your browser, and O/S. Those last two are mainly for CSS debugging.

You can email the list or send to me directly: joshua.d.shaw at dartmouth.edu<mailto:joshua.d.shaw at dartmouth.edu>
