Windows 8.1 print directly to printer

    Question

  • I am developing a Windows 8.1 native app and the functionallity I am implementing requires a direct print to the printer, avoiding the default print flyout of metro apps.

    enter image description here

    However, I don't see the way to achieve it. I only want to tap a button and print a document directly, it must be simple and quick operation for the user.

    Please help me! I only want to skip the print selection and print settings!!

    Thanks

    Fran.

  • There is no way to achieve this functionality in a WinRT app.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
