Print a label on thermal printer using UI API

I need to print a 4x6 label on a bluetooth Zebra thermal printer from SAP B1 (9.1 PL11) using UI API. Client need to print a sku label when doing a Receiving goods.

I can open a serial port, send the ZPL code to the printer and print it. But can I do the same thing with Crystal Report? It would gives the client total control of the label design. Is there a way to send a specific CR reports to a printer selected by the user on the UI ?

thanks for your time and help

    Crystal works the same way as printing from Notepad, you have to select a printer to print to.

    So the printer needs to be available all the time so it's configured in Windows Printer dialog box.

    API then selects the printer as defined in the RPT file or selected using the dialog boxes or API's to select the printer from a drop down box.

    No option to enable a port, that has to be defined in the printer when adding it to Windows.
