The new Barcode scanner control is out, and we recommend it to anyone who needs to scan a barcode, QR code or data matrix codes on their mobile devices.
The control will automatically detect PDF 417 driver's licence barcodes.
A couple of notes:
Old barcode scanner control has been renamed to Web barcode scanner. It is disabled by default and can be enabled in the experimental features settings. We are keeping it around as it is currently the only way to scan barcodes in a web browser.
The ScanBarcode function has been removed from experimental properties. The function will still work for existing apps, but those apps should be updated to use the new Barcode scanner control. It is the same functionality underneath, and it will store the value for you in the control, so it should be easier to use than the function.
