#StackBounty: #java #android #printing #wifi-direct ANDROID -How to print a text file using WiFi Direct

Bounty: 100

I have a working Android app that displays user stats. I want to send a small report with plain text format (.txt) to a WiFi Direct printer. I have downloaded the sample demo app from Android. I did the proper modification in order to look for .txt file. But I don’t understand why my code is not working. After selecting the file I want to print, nothing happens.

The current configuration for my EPSON printer bellow.

  • Wi-Fi Direct Mode : On

  • Communication Mode: AP

  • Operation Mode: IEEE802.11g/n

  • Communication Speed: Auto

  • SSID: DIRECT-D3A36C54
  • Channel: 7
  • Security Level: WPA2-PSK(AES)

  • Link Status: Unknown

This is the DeviceDetailFragment class
