barcode scanning with camera not working



any idea what is this? This worked well before, but now it gives below error after second scan.


And it isn't logical at all:


  • on the same device scanning with this app doesn't work but earlier created app works fine for scanning (same method for scanning and power apps versions)
  • this app giving error doesn't work on my device but it works on my collegue's device (same type of device and android version)

What I have here, is basically Barcode scanner -object and then text box having set Default to be value of the barcode scanner.


Any help would be highly appreciated!!

Hi @marovil ,

Other than changing the camera number (your device might not be Camera 1), it may be device related - I know Huawei phones have issues in the space.
