  • Hi,

    I am planning to prepare an application for pocket pc  with print feature.
    I have seen many third party SDKs for printing but can anyone help me out with
    some other way.

    Any help will be appreciated.

  • There is no printer support built into the .NET Compact Framework.  If you want printer support, you will need to use a 3rd party solution or write software to talk to the printer yourself.

    You might want to check out the HP Mobile Printing solutions at http://www.hpdevelopersolutions.com/mobile/index.cfm , you may find these useful.

    There is also an excellent chapter on how to print yourself (e.g., by calling down to native code, in the case of Pocket PC), in the Printing chapter (Chapter 17) of the book, ".NET Compact Framework Programming with C#", by Paul Yao and David Durant.  This is a great place to start.

    I hope these resources help, and good luck with your printing solution.
