Hola Omar,

Por favor, puedes seguir el link de abajo, ahi te damos una lista de 5 pasos para que rapidamente puedas desarrollar tus aplicaciones con nuestros SDKs y nuestras impresoras Link-OS


Hi Adel,

Unlike on Android, the Link-OS SDK only provides one Bluetooth channel on iOS. So both status and ZPL print on iOS share the same Bluetooth channel on iOS. There are some sample code here to illustrating how to check the status on iOS over the Bluetooth. The status checking part in the sample code is between the line 59 and the line 73.


Hola,

estoy intentando realizar la impresion desde una appa android a una impresora zebra wz320 no se si podria ayudarme


Hi,

is there a link-os Status Channel on iOS ?

on Android i check the printer status via the status channel, before sending a job, like that:

Connection btStatusConnection = new BluetoothStatusConnection(theBtMacAddress);

ZebraPrinter printer = ZebraPrinterFactory.getLinkOsPrinter(connection, PrinterLanguage.ZPL);

if (null == printer) {

     printer = ZebraPrinterFactory.getInstance(PrinterLanguage.ZPL, connection);

}

PrinterStatus printerStatus = printer.getCurrentStatus();

How can i achieve the same practice on iOS

thanks


Hi Steven,

Thanks for your help,

i am already using the connection channel to check the status before sending a job,

but for performance reasons (time & motion) i prefer using the status channel like with Android version, but, unfortunately it's not build on link-os iOS version.

Hopefully, it will be provided in the next versions of link-os for iOS platform


Hi Everyone, I posted the sample code that goes with this video on Github as well:
