B4J Library [B4X] SD Zebra (printer)

This library is the result of my first approach with Zebra printers. I started by connecting via LAN (or Wi-Fi) ZPL language.
I plan to connect via BLE and perhaps also via USB. Have a good time. Preview only works if you have an internet connection
For ESC/POS Printer see here
The Demo version does not print images, barcodes, raw commands

NB
: This is a demo version, each print will show the SD symbol. Contact me privately for a full version.
Some Honeywell printers support the ZPL II language to make them compatible with Zebra and facilitate replacement. So this library might work on Honeywell as well



Anyone who wants a different version from those distributed (such as Bluetooth SPP, USB, RS) can contact me privately.

Hello. I have been using this magnificent library for some time. But now I have the problem that it does not print correctly with my USB printer and it comes out as seen in the photo, I have another one the same but it is wifi and the label comes out perfectly fine. What can I do to solve it?

I see that it is printing commands but not executing them. Is it a Zebra or an ESC/POS?
Which Zebra model is it?

I am working for BLE and USB. I already have the classes ready but I have to do the tests and I don't have a printer.

Trying ESC / POS printers the BLE and USB connection works, so I'm very confident it works on ZEBRA too
Is a GG-AT90W.
I have another one just like it, but with Wi-Fi connectivity, and it works perfectly.
I installed the Linux, Windows and Mac drivers and in all 3 OS it does the same.

I have found the solution to the problem. I set my printer to Generic Text-Only Printer and it works correctly. THANK YOU.
