How I can select a bluetooth printer in PowerBuilder Mobile?.

I can't print my datawindow. I download some applications for Android, but print very small my report, I'm using a 58mm paper with a thermal printer.

Hi José;

  It is a little different on Android devices as they may or may not detect WiFi and or BlueTooth printers. In older versions of Android, you need to manually download the print driver from the manufacturer via the PlayStore. In my case on Android 7.0, I needed to go to the PlayStore and download the ESPON manufacturer driver for the O/S. Once it was installed and I had to open the System Settings and navigate to the printer section. Then "Add" the Epson printer and enable it. Once I did that, my PB Apps DWO's could print to the now enabled printer.

  On newer Android O/S's like v 8.x or 9.x, you can have the O/S scan for WiFi / BlueTooth enabled printers nearby. On my tablet for example that runs 8.1.0, the O/S automatically located my Epson WiFi printer. It then brought the manufacturer's driver down from the PlayStore and installed it. I still had to enable the device driver after that (basically turn it on) under the settings menu. Then again, all my PB Apps running under AWS could now print using that printer.

HTH

Regards ... Chris

Hello José,

dw.print() will prompt any available AirPrinter-compatible (iOS), Bluetooth or Google Cloud (Android) printers.
The Powerserver Mobile app will then access printer functionality as provided by the underlying O.S.

Cheers,

Marco
