✅ Barcode Scanning

Adding barcode and driver’s license scanning would be a great addition for warehouse and banking applications. Both are standardized and would allow for less manual entry.

Status: Completed

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Hi

 

It was told somewhere that QR Code scanning will be included later.

Level: Powered On

This is critical to my app.  Please update the barcode scanner to support 2d scanning!!

 

Thanks

Hi

 

Audrie, when you change the status to COMPLETED, do you mean QRC is ready?

I tried but nothing.

 

TQ

Where is the QR functionality? I checked in the Barcode types and only see 1D options, no 2D (QR) options yet.

Hi there, if you don't mind, could you please update the status of the QR-Code function?

 

I would like to add it.

The new Barcode Scanner control works great.  The QR codes scan extremely fast.  It scans before my phone get's a chance to stop over it.  This will work great for the Inventory Scanner app I'm creating.  It was put on hold because the old barcode scanner was a deal breaker.  The only issue now is how to get the Barcode.Value to reset from it's last scanned value.  When I reset the form the TextSearchBox1 that defaults to barcode value still shows the scanned value.

 

TextSearchBox1.Default = BarcodeScanner1.Value

Does the "New" barcode scanner support Windows 10 yet - tried building a shipping and tracking solution where users also needed some of the other o365 tools - available to windows but the barcode scanner says "Try Scanning on an Android or iOS device" .  I know legacy web barcode scanner but that was so inaccurate.
