Hi,

How can I print from a Mobile device's NetWeb app to a bluetooth connected printer?

Thanks,
Vic

Hi Bruce,

Basically I need to print a report or some form of texts. Normally a script can handle the printing from a desktop browser webapp to a printer but not sure how to do it for a bluetooth connected printer. A native app on the device can print to it but not from a webapp. There are info that I have to use a cloud based driver but that is not an option as it's not connected to the internet. So was thinking whether there's a path from nettalk apps to the driver of the mobile device?

Thanks,
Vic

Hi Vic,

I've not tried with NetTalk Apps at all (ie from an "app") so not sure if that's possible or not. I guess you could research that.

If you can't print from the browser on the phone though then presumably then it's not going to work from a web app.

cheers
Bruce
