New Barcode Scanner - how do I start the scanner?

In the new Barcode Scanner control, how do we launch the scanner? The old function was ScanBarCode(). Is there any similar function available?

Hey @prasadvenkat ,

 

The new barcode scanner is a little different from the function in a sense that it's an actual control that the user has to press in order for it to be launched but we've recently added support for makers to use the Select function similar to the button control and it should be available at the end of the month.

 

Example if you want to scan a barcode when the user selects a TextBox you would set the OnSelect  property to Select(BarcodeScanner1) and Default property to BarcodeScanner1.Value
