Check if Enterprise Home Screen is in 'admin' or 'user' mode

I am using the EMDK for Xamarin for a custom built app for configuring our Zebra devices. We also use EHS to help lock down the device to certain apps. I am wondering if there is any way from our custom app to be able to tell if EHS is currently running in 'user' mode or 'admin' mode. The goal is to make only some features of our app available to the user if the device is 'locked' as opposed to when an admin has logged in.

Using RFD8500 RFID scanner in Flutter / ReactNative / Xamarin App


I have a need to develop an App that should work in both Android and iOS devices. The "ONLY" prominent requirement for me is that my App should communicate with RFD8500 scanner to scan UHF RFID tags.

Since my App MUST work in Android and iOS devices, instead of creating a "native" App, I'm going to create a "Cross Platform" App.

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


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.

Saving connection details to use for auto connection


Im working on the Link OS SDK (previous generation) and can successfully connect via USB > select printer > print demo ZPL using the demo application.
the printer.Address = "/dev/bus/usb/001/002".

the model im using is the ZD420 with USB interface only.

Given the address, how can I create a Connection object using connection builder?

So that i can simply print the data after the first printer selection.

Function Key Capture - Xamarin

Hi there, am new to Xamarin and need some advice.

We have migrated from a VS2008 application on a window CE 6.0 RF device (Motorola) to VS2017 & Xamarin on a Zebra MC9300. The android apk is installed and is running fine but we now need to use the function keys, i.e. F1, F2, etc.This is not coded.

Does anyone have any sample code on how to do this? Do I need EMDK? In the older application we used the form's key down event to capture. Any direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for you time.'
