Hi thanks for your quick reply. I am using the ScanBarcode() fuction and placing this data into a gallery. The first scan that should show in the gallery doens't populate anymore. The second time I scan, they show up no problem. It is only the first scan that does not work. 

@katie406 I am not able to reproduce your issue on my device but I would advise you to use the Barcode Scanner control instead of the function because the function should be deprecated very soon.

Ok thank you for the info. Does Powerapps have any updated documentation on the newly implemented barcode scanner? Thanks again for the help.

yes, here is the link for the control's documentation (Link), it is just missing a newly added property OnScan which is a behaviour property and works similar to the OnSelect property on other controls.
