I am using the barcode scanning in an app, but am curious as to what each type of barcode will return. I use a self generated 3of9 code for my simple part numbers which needs to be printed using a "*" at either end for example to make it readable.
Other barcodes (official EAN type) do not need this.
The docs on barcode scanning seem a bit light on details. There are options for value and text for example. What is the difference.
Is there a difference in the data that comes back from an EAN or other unique globally valid BC versus the simple return of numbers that a 3of9 does?
The default code type is Automatic so as long as its within the acceptable barcodes, the output will equate to the barcode type and date.
You can also specify exactly which type of barcodes a scanner will scan.
So if I scan one of the globally unique codes I'll get that data?
I saw a youtube video of something that appeared to do this. The person scanned a Chipotle sauce bottle and the whole list of ingredients came up on the app. For my purposes I'm probably just going to need the number for a lookup process in a SP list.
Hi @TonyKuiperSAAS ,
Do you want to know the value that the barcode scanner could get?
Usually, we use this formula to represent the value that the barcode scanner get:
The result usually is number value.
The supported barcode type:
NOTE: PDF_417 and AZTEC aren't supported in Auto mode
