Modification of ZXING Barcode Scanner project for easy Android QR-Code detection and AR purposes.

This project implements an Android view which show camera and notify when there's a QR code inside the preview.

Some Classes of camera controls and autofocus are taken and slightly modified from Barcode Scanner Android App.

You can also use this for Augmented Reality purposes, as you get QR control points coordinates when decoding.

Usage

  • Add a "QRCodeReaderView" in the layout editor like you actually do with a button for example.
  • In your onCreate method, you can find the view as usual, using findViewById() function.
  • Create an Activity which implements onQRCodeReadListener, and let implements required methods or set a onQRCodeReadListener to the QRCodeReaderView object
  • Make sure you have camera permissions in order to use the library. (https://developer.android.com/training/permissions/requesting.html)
 <com.dlazaro66.qrcodereaderview.QRCodeReaderView
        android:id="@+id/qrdecoderview"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent" />
  • Start & Stop camera preview in onPause() and onResume() overriden methods.
  • You can place widgets or views over QRDecoderView.
    public class DecoderActivity extends Activity implements OnQRCodeReadListener {

    private TextView resultTextView;
    private QRCodeReaderView qrCodeReaderView;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_decoder);

        mydecoderview = (QRCodeReaderView) findViewById(R.id.qrdecoderview);
        mydecoderview.setOnQRCodeReadListener(this);

        // Use this function to enable/disable decoding
        mydecoderview.setQRDecodingEnabled(true);

        // Use this function to change the autofocus interval (default is 5 secs)
        mydecoderview.setAutofocusInterval(2000L);

        // Use this function to enable/disable Torch
        mydecoderview.setTorchEnabled(true);

        // Use this function to set front camera preview
        mydecoderview.setFrontCamera();

        // Use this function to set back camera preview
        mydecoderview.setBackCamera();
    }

    // Called when a QR is decoded
    // "text" : the text encoded in QR
    // "points" : points where QR control points are placed in View
    @Override
    public void onQRCodeRead(String text, PointF[] points) {
        resultTextView.setText(text);
    }

    @Override
    protected void onResume() {
        super.onResume();
        qrCodeReaderView.startCamera();
    }

    @Override
    protected void onPause() {
        super.onPause();
        qrCodeReaderView.stopCamera();
    }
}

Add it to your project

Add QRCodeReaderView dependency to your build.gradle

dependencies{
      compile 'com.dlazaro66.qrcodereaderview:qrcodereaderview:2.0.1'
}

Note: There is an issue with gradle 2.10, if you declare your dependency and it can't be found in jCenter repository (could not find qrcodereaderview.jar Searched in the following locations: or similar), try to declare the library dependency like this:

dependencies{
      compile ('com.dlazaro66.qrcodereaderview:qrcodereaderview:2.0.1@aar'){
        transitive = true
      }
}

And in some cases, you need to clean your Gradle cache ./gradlew build --refresh-dependencies
