QR code scanning

Hello PA Team,

 

  Is there any QR code scanning ability exists with Power Apps ? We are construction related company and all the eqiupments are tagged with QR codes. We need to create several mobile apps and without QR code scanning we can't even start projects.

 

Please advise.

 

Thanks,

Vipul

Hello,

 

Microsoft has provided improved barcode scanning capabilities using OS capabilities for Android/IOS. you can enable it using a beta feature that is now available.

Hello

 

As far as I have seen there is no 2d barcode scanning ability, I have upvoted this as seems to be a feature many people want. Hopefully this will be added in the next PowerApps update

Re: QR code scanning

Hello, 

I have tried searching but no such capability currently exists, Even powerapps is fairly bad at reading 1D barcodes and I found that only EAN 13 barcode work a bit reliably, the remaining barcodes are very difficult to read.

 

However I found a way around this. You can install an android keyboard that supports scanning. The following App on android store helps you scan a value into any application by just a press of button, I find this to be a solution until powerapps does not comeup with robust 1d and 2D barcode scanning functionality. Do Try and let me know the feedback.

Hi there,

 

  Thanks for the solution. I've already created restful web service, which is hosted in-house; It can parse the QR code image and return me the string and so far its working well. Its again just a work around before MS comes with 2D scanning capabilities. 

Thanks.
