Hi,
this is my first question. This forum is very good and i solve very much first problems.

I need a library for the mobile Bluetooth-Printer Citizen CMP-20. In native code it was no problem print the samples. Now i can build the library but the printer doesen't print the sample. I can print a single line with the class AsyncStreamsText from Erel. So i think i can only print with a asyncon Task.
But i haven't any idee.

For my Tests, i use the Bluetooth-Sample-Code. I made some changes.

Main

B4X:
#Region Module Attributes
   #FullScreen: False
   #IncludeTitle: True
   #ApplicationLabel: Bluetooth Example
   #VersionCode: 1
   #VersionName: 
   #SupportedOrientations: unspecified
   #CanInstallToExternalStorage: False
#End Region

Hi Erel,

thanks for your answer. You do your job verywell. I read a lot of your examples and answers.:sign0098:

No, no i get no error messages. The printer do nothing. I wrote the i try a test with your AsyncStreamsText. The printer print the line. So connection is very good.

But maby i get another way. Can you give me a Help.

I need a
B4X:
Dim btDevice As BluetoothDevice

So i can try this code
B4X:
// Bluetooth Connection method.
    public void btConn(final BluetoothDevice btDev) throws IOException
    {
       new connTask().execute(btDev);
    }
    
       
    
 // Bluetooth Connection Task.
    class connTask extends AsyncTask<BluetoothDevice, Void, Integer>
    {
              
       @Override
       protected void onPreExecute()
       {
          ESCPOSPrinter posPtr2 = new ESCPOSPrinter();
          String data = "ABCDEFGHIJKLMN";  
          try {
            posPtr2.printString("PDF417 1\r\n");

         try {
            posPtr2.printPDF417(data, data.length(), 2, 20, ESCPOSConst.CMP_ALIGNMENT_LEFT);
         } catch (UnsupportedEncodingException e) {
            // TODO Auto-generated catch block
            e.printStackTrace();

          if(result.intValue() == 0)   // Connection success.
          {
             
          }
          else   // Connection failed.
          {
             
          }
          super.onPostExecute(result);
       }
    }

What do you think about that?

Hi Erel,
thank's for your answer. In this moment a don't have any idea to send my data to the printer. I can only send data with your AsyncStreamsText and my library with bluetooth-function from citizen.

the toggle function is not absolutely required - it is just a convenience

try manually pairing the printer with your device

leave blue tooth on

try printing again


By The Way - what device are you trying this on? Version of Android?

Hi guys,

after 6 month in want to try again to write a library for b4a. It is very important to use functions from the citizin-library to print QR-Codes, barcodes and BMP-Files.

In the document Android Port Package Manual from citizen is printed that you have to use the RequestHandler from citizen. I tried to use Threading from agraham. Maby he can help me.

Android code:
B4X:
Thread handlerThread;
.....
// Execution routine.
handlerThread = new Thread(new RequestHandler());
handlerThread.run();
.....
// Termination routine. To Avoid NullPointerException.
if ( ( handlerThread != null ) && ( handlerThread.isAlive() ) )
handlerThread.interrupt();

RequesHandler = com.citizen.request.android.RequestHandler;

I build 2 Librarys for b4a. CitizenBTPort and CitizenESCP. But i don't know how can i use the RequestHandler in Threading?

CitizenBtPort is for the Bluetooth-Connect to the Printer. Class is CitizenBtPort
CitizenESCP is for the Printer-Commands. Class is ESCPrinter

The Citizen_Android_1056.jar is the original Citizen Library.

Here are my Library? They are not realy ready for everybody!

Thank's for help!

Best regards from Germany

Hi all,

here is an example based on bluetooth chat example to use a citizen CMP-20 mobile printer.
You have to copy the librararys in you custom lib directory. After copy you have to refresh
you libs. And click the checkboxes for the librarys.

Hope i could help.

Best regards from Germany.
