RW420 how print multiple copies with Android SDK?

I'm printing a bitmap with the Android SDK in this way:


int printQty= 3;

Connection connection = new BluetoothConnection(printerAddress);;

//for removing the useless margin printed

connection.write("! U1 JOURNAL\r\n! U1 SETFF 100 2\r\n".getBytes());


ZebraPrinter printer = ZebraPrinterFactory.getInstance(connection);

Bitmap bitmapToPrint = i got my bitmap somewhere....

ZebraImageAndroid zebraImageToPrint = new ZebraImageAndroid(bitmapToPrint);

for (int i = 0; i < printQty; i++){

     printer.printImage(zebraImageToPrint, 0, 0, -1, -1, false);






The problem is:
the printing is taking a lot of time because the bitmap is large, is there a way to bypass the for loop and tell to the printer how many quantity to print without calling printImage multiple times?
