How do I print over USB on Android?

I am using the Motorola TC55 and trying to print to a Zebra KR403 over USB using ZPL, but I have been unable to find anything on this subject virtually anywhere.  Is this supported? Has anyone else done this?

 

I am assuming this will have to be accomplished using the standard Android USBHost libraries?

 

Thank you.

Hi Jon-Luke,Yes the standard

Hi Jon-Luke,

Yes the standard USBHost libraries work.  The Zebra SDK for Android also has helper functions to do this and take some of the guesswork out if you are developing in Java. There is sample code in the documentation.   If not JAva, I may be able to point you to other documentation.
