PhoneGap Plugin BarcodeScanner

Adaptation by CJ Coffey -- Github

================================

DEPRECATED - PLEASE USE THE ORIGINAL LOCATED HERE

This project was initially made to bridge the gap between the phonegap plugin not being able to scan certain data matrix codes. Recently, the original repo has fixed this error, so I recommend just going there since I'm unable to keep up with a lot of my open source projects nowadays. Thank you for your support and understanding.

Original repo can be found here

Example Cordova app can be found here

Installation

cordova plugin add https://github.com/dually8/BarcodeScanner.git

Supported Platforms

  • Android
  • iOS
  • Windows 8
  • Windows Phone 8
  • BlackBerry 10
  • Browser

Note: the Android source for this project includes an Android Library Project. plugman currently doesn't support Library Project refs, so its been prebuilt as a jar library. Any updates to the Library Project should be committed with an updated jar.

success and fail are callback functions. Success is passed an object with data, type and cancelled properties. Data is the text representation of the barcode data, type is the type of barcode detected and cancelled is whether or not the user cancelled the scan.

A full example could be:

   cordova.plugins.barcodeScanner.scan(
      function (result) {
          alert("We got a barcode\n" +
                "Result: " + result.text + "\n" +
                "Format: " + result.format + "\n" +
                "Cancelled: " + result.cancelled);
      },
      function (error) {
          alert("Scanning failed: " + error);
      }
   );

Encoding a Barcode

The plugin creates the object cordova.plugins.barcodeScanner with the method encode(type, data, success, fail).

Supported encoding types:

  • TEXT_TYPE
  • EMAIL_TYPE
  • PHONE_TYPE
  • SMS_TYPE

Supported encoding OSes

  • Android
A full example could be:

   cordova.plugins.barcodeScanner.encode(cordova.plugins.barcodeScanner.Encode.TEXT_TYPE, "http://www.nytimes.com", function(success) {
            alert("encode success: " + success);
          }, function(fail) {
            alert("encoding failed: " + fail);
          }
        );

Windows8 quirks

Windows 8 implementation currently doesn't support encode functionality.

Windows Phone 8 quirks

Windows Phone 8 implementation currently doesn't support encode functionality.

BlackBerry 10 quirks

BlackBerry 10 implementation currently doesn't support encode functionality. Cancelling a scan on BlackBerry 10 is done by touching the screen.

Thanks on Github

So many -- check out the original iOS, Android and BlackBerry 10 repos.

Special thanks

TheLevelUp -- This version would not be possible without their port of the ZXing library.
