Barcode Scanner plugin for Phonegap

By Matt Kane

Adding the Plugin to your project

Copy the .h and .mm file to the Plugins directory in your project. Copy the .js file to your www directory and reference it from your html file(s). You also need to add the ZXing library to your project.

Adding ZXing to your project

First, download the ZXing zip file, unpack it, and put it somewhere safe such as your Documents folder. You'll need to whole package, not just the iphone folder. Then add it to your project, using the instructions in the zxing-1.x/iphone/README file.

Using the plugin

The plugin creates the object window.plugins.barcodeScanner with one method scan(types, success, fail) types is a comma-separated list of barcode types that the scanner should accept. If you pass null then any barcode type will be accepted. Currently only QR_CODE is supported, but that should change soon.

success and fail are callback functions. Success is passed the decoded barcode as a string. A full example could be:

window.plugins.barcodeScanner.scan( BarcodeScanner.Type.QR_CODE, function(result) {
        alert("We got a barcode: " + result);
    }, function(error) {
        alert("Scanning failed: " + error);
    }
);
