Xamarin Link-os iOS, Doesn't work without data connectivity. ZQ510

Regards,

I have been working on an app using Xamarin with Link-os plugin and ZQ510 printer. The idea of ​​the app is that it can work in remote places where there is no internet connectivity.

The debug printing process always works. The iPhone can print without any problem with the Wi-Fi off and the data access off.

When the iPhone is disconnected from the PC and has some kind of data access, it is capable of printing. You can even remove the SIM card and connect it to a Wi-Fi without internet access and it will be able to print.

"Undefined symbols for architecture arm64" using iOS SDK 1.4.8

I just started integrated the iOS SDK into an app using the latest 1.4.8 iOS SDK, and have run into a problem.

When trying to get an instance to the SDK using "id <ISbtSdkApi> apiInstance = [SbtSdkFactory createSbtSdkApiInstance];", it fails to build with an arm64 architecture error:

Not printing correctly using link-os Library on iOS Device

Hi,

I am using link-OS Zebra library in iOS app for printing badges(Images). I am using ZEBRA ZD500 printer.
And I am using following method for print:

- (BOOL) printImage:(CGImageRef)image
atX:(NSInteger)x
atY:(NSInteger)y
withWidth:(NSInteger)width
withHeight:(NSInteger)height
andIsInsideFormat:(BOOL)isInsideFormat
error:(NSError **)error

I am passing -1 for width and height.
because passing -1 will preserve original width and height.

Initial decode barcode beep

We are using the scanner in a situation where users are scanning a lot of barcodes. They use the "beep" as an indication of both the barcode being decoding AND that the barcode was the CORRECT barcode. I'd like to disable this "I FOUND A BARCODE" beep, but I see no way to do that.

Is there someway to turn off the beep. I see low, medium, and high settings, but no off. We use the vibrate function without a beep sometimes, but I don't see a way to do that either.

I'm using the iOS SDK.

Turning off the decoded barcode beep

We are using the scanner in a situation where users are scanning a lot of barcodes. They use the "beep" as an indication of both the barcode being decoding AND that the barcode was the CORRECT barcode. I'd like to disable this "I FOUND A BARCODE" beep, but I see no way to do that.

In addition, the initial established contact with the scanner is EXTREMELY loud. Is there some mechanism to quieten this.

I'm using the iOS SDK.

Thanks!

What options do we have for supporting TC70x series within a Xamarin Forms Cross-platform app targeting both Android AND iOS?

We're looking into supporting scanning devices made by Zebra, to scan barcodes. Most of our users are using TC70 Android device. But I have seen Windows device as well, and thought maybe one day someone might use an iOS device and plug in the zebra scanner to it somehow? Is it totally nonsense to try and support iOS at all? Or is there an actual option for this?

ANY help on this would be awesome!

How to Whitelist Your iOS Apps for Zebra Scanners

As an iOS app developer, you would be very disappointed when your app gets rejected by Apple, saying “We are unable to post your app to the App Store at this time because your app has not been authorized by the accessory manufacturer to work with the MFi accessory.” These type of rejections not only cast doubt and confusion for developers who are unfamiliar with the accessory, but it also delays the launch schedule of the app unexpectedly..

How To Whitelist Your iOS Apps for Zebra Printers

Recently, we received a lot of feedback from developers about their app rejections from Apple App Store Review Team for apps using Bluetooth to connect with Zebra printers. In this blog, I'll address Apple's MFi whitelisting, the process and a way to avoid the unnecessary rejection/resubmission cycle.
