I was using ScanBarcode() up until today when I discovered it was no longer supported.
My scenario is that I have a dropdown that changes and depending on the value selected, there might be a need to scan a barcode. If that is the case, I was calling ScanBarcode() and saving the result to a variable.
Now as far as I can tell there is no way to trigger a Scan other than the user clicking on a BarcodeScanner control. Select(BarcodeScanner1) would be obvious but it's not supported. In my head there is a hidden "Select" method on the BarcodeScanner control that calls ScanBarcode().
Bring back ScanBarcode() or create a method to trigger the BarcodeScanner control.
In other places in my app I was using an icon to trigger ScanBarcode(). This is also now not supported and instead of using a nice icon I have to use an ugly text button. There is no way to make the icon work because I can't trigger a scan for the reasons described above.
