Hi Jofin,

The easiest way is to use the Link-OS Multiplatform SDK | Zebra 

Documentation and a short sample on printing graphics is here: Link-OS SDK - Zebra Technologies Techdocs

Hi Jofin,Please take a look

Hi Jofin,

Please take a look at my post above.  I believe those links should get you the information you are looking for.  The SDK has basic sample code and documentation for printing images.  The other linktalks about how to work with PDF documents.

Hi Jolfin,I'm trying to

Hi Jolfin,

I'm trying to understand.  If you have a image or PDF with text and barcodes, there is no easy way to convert the text and barcodes into CPCL directly.  You can take these images and convert them into a PCX format that can be part of a text file that can be sent directly to the printer.  I think you will need a third party library to convert to PCX if you really want to store it as a file. 

Our own SDK does the conversion, but it sends it directly to the printer and does not give you a string to store as a file.  Usually we recommend using storeImage() to save the image to the printer, then you can send the CPCL directly or from a file to print it.  See the  .  post.

Does this answer your question?
