Resolution / Answer
Zebra has changed the game by creating PDF Direct – Virtual Device that allows Link-OS™ printers to directly receive and print PDFs.
This sample application illustrates how to print a PDF on a printer with a PDF Virtual Device installed. The app allows you to select a printer connected via Bluetooth and any PDF file stored on the device.
This app, created using the Android SDK and Zebra’s Link-OS Multi-Platform SDK (version 2.11), was developed for devices running Android 4.4 or newer.
This code follows Zebra’s Best Practices, including printer status verification.
