Barcode scanner not working (iphone, win desktop)

Hi

 

 

I made barcode scanner it is working nice on win desktop, desktop app PowerApps .. while in F5 it is working realy nice, showing "red" line and reading the barcode.

 

But when I run app by normal (windows desktop, ihpone (se/5 im not sure), camera is working but it is not loading barcode, even not showing "red lines", even not adjusting brightness/contract etc from sliders

 

(on win desktop it was working nicely before version 2.0.676)

 

 

I think it is a bug so im not sure if should be on this forum .. but feedback : )

PowerApp barcode scanning is evidently broken under iOS.

Hi Marek,

 

On Windows desktop, please try a different BarcodeType to see if it will work.

 

On iOS, this blog could be a reference. There is limitation when we run barcode control on iOS device. Please set the scanner width and height to 640x700 or lower and scan rate of 30 to see if it will work.

I guarantee you that will not work on iOS.  PowerApp barcode scanning is broken on iOS.  Works fine on desktop with a cheap USB webcam, but no recognition on iOS regardless of settings.
