Scan Barcode/Email

I have created the scanner and it is working great. I have it set to go to a gallery as a collection...

 

Collect(ScannerButton,{CPE: ScanBarcode()})

 

My question is how can I then take this barcode scan gallery/collection and email it? I can't figure out the coding at all...I currently have this...

 

Office365.SendEmail("test.email", "test", "test2" concat(Scannerbutton, CPE) I don't even mind sending it as an attachment is there is a way to do that...I can send pics no problem this way but I can't get scanned UPC's to attach to the email. Thanks for any help!

Hello Stmorgan,

You can try this:
Office365.SendEmail("emailhere@email.com","BarcodeTestSubject","These are the scanned barcodes:"&Char(13)&Concat(Scannerbutton,CPE&Char(13)&Char(13))&"Thank you")

Char(13) is used to create a new line

Hi @Stmorgan,

 

You cannot directly send gallery/collection as attachment. Because scanned the barcode is text value but eamil attachment only accept the blob. You need to convert barcode value to blob after that attach to email. I don't know exactly what is your requirement. I try to make sample base on your question.

 

Here is scenario of sample

1. Scan barcode

2. Convert String to file blob(txt file) and save it into gallary

3. Send the email

 

I need to create the flow for convert string to file before start create the App.

 

Here is flow.

Save as "Convert StringToFile" after create the flow.

 

 

Here is App use with flow and send mail with attachment.

Add Flow to App

UpdateContext({varScannedResult: ""});
Clear(collScanned)

UpdateContext({varScannedResult: ScanBarcode()});
If(
    (varScannedResult <> ""),
    Collect(
        collScanned,
        {
            Name: Concatenate(
                varScannedResult,
                ".txt"
            ),
            ContentBytes: ConvertStringToFile.Run(varScannedResult).file,
            '@odata.type': "byte"
        }
    )
)

Please take note : Collection item must be save as above.

Send Mail

If(
    (!IsEmpty(collScanned) And (EMailAddr.Text <> "")),
    Office365.SendEmail(
        EMailAddr.Text,
        "BarCodeList",
        "Please find my attach for scanned barcode List",
        {Attachments: collScanned}
    )
)
