Is it possible to Print a Card from a Zebra ZXP Series 3 using Browser Print with javascript? If so, can someone please point me to an example?

Zebra support finally

Zebra support finally responded, it is not possible using Browser Print to print to a Card printer, but it may be possible using the Printer IP Address, I'm not sure.

Hi Josh,

Your question is best directed to our developers through this Zebra Developer Portal as we could only provide support for technical issues with the printers. Although for your question 'Is Card Printing even possible using Browser Print?' unfortunately the answer is no. Kindly refer to this Browser Print link for the list of supported printers, currently it is for our label printers only.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Joshua, The only way to do

Hi Joshua, The only way to do this is to create a native app and have your web page send it the info to be forwarded to the printer.  Most browsers do not support TCP sockets or USB connections from Javascript although some browsers do allow for these in extensions.    We do have the SDKs available for creating native apps (using the IP address). 

Does this make sense?

Hey Robin,Thank you for the

Hey Robin,

Thank you for the response. I am getting ready to download the SDK via here. This may seem like a dumb question, can my 64-bit computer use the 32-bit version of the SDK? Also, we will be creating a separate independent service that will communicate strings to send from our Web Server to our Client's host computer. We are not going to use it as a Network Printer. I am asking this because we are trying to avoid having to check the Client's computer being a 64-bit or 32-bit OS.

Thanks in advance,

Joshua

Yes a 32bit sdk will work on

Yes a 32bit sdk will work on a 64bit computer but make sure any client applications are compiled in 32bit as well.
