Barcode Scanner: recommend please

The latest version of PA works with barcode scanners. I am shopping for a wireless barcode scanner that is

  • much more affordable than the $200 tier of premium scanners. 
  • If it can scan QR codes too, that's even better.
  • Is it possible for scanners to automatically press "enter" following scanning, or is that programmed?

 

I would like to hear some recommendations.

I just read the release notes. I won't need a barcode scanner because PA just uses the device's onboard camera! No purchase necessary.

Hi Dang:

 

I have posted on Auto-Detection of BarCode Type with example. Anyway, the result is not as convenient as normal Scanner Apps found in the Store. I just wish that PG can include autodetection instead of creating dropdown for BarCodeType. Even in my testing, I have encountered 3 types of code, ean, Codexxx,..

 

Have a nice day.

Hi Dang:

 

Oh.. Yes, the built-in cameara is for scanner. I thought you know.

 

I have shared in PowerApps idea & another post. Just, guessing maybe bug in Handphone causing orientation of Scanner Size in Portrait instead of Lanscape.
