We use an online system where you can log in with a username and password and gain access to printable documents. The online system uses CSS rules, so that if you are viewing it on the screen it has certain features that are not included in the printout. Also, it has page break rules so that it can repeat the logo on every page and say Page 2 of 3, etc.
This works great on a laptop, but I want to use Android.
I've seen tablet multiple print solutions.
- Some of them ignore the print styling, which is bad because then the page breaks based on the length of the content instead of the instructions of the online system.
- Some of them use an outside app which separately fetches the content, which doesn't work because like I said it is behind a login, and the cookies are not transferred to the other app. (for good reason)
Is there a print solution for Android that does not suffer these types of problems? Can you outline
- What Android versions would be necessary?
- What types of printers would be needed?
Also, keep in mind this is a mobile solution. I can either physically plug in the printer or connect the printer to the same WiFi hot spot, or Bluetooth, or something else you suggest.
