  • EAN8
  • CODE128
  • PDF417
  • QR
  • AZTEC
  • ITF14

find the latest asdoc for this ANE here.

AIR Usage

For the complete AS3 code usage, see the demo project here.

import com.myflashlab.air.extensions.barcode.*;

var _ex:Barcode = new Barcode();
_ex.addEventListener(BarcodeEvent.RESULT, onResult);
_ex.addEventListener(BarcodeEvent.CANCEL, onCancel);

if(OverrideAir.os == OverrideAir.ANDROID)
{
	// to speed up the launch time on Android, you may call the warmup method when
	// it is appropriate in your application. This may be needed if you are using the
	// full version of AndroidSupport dependency.
	// the first time you call the warmup method, your app will freeze for a few seconds...
	_ex.warmup();			
}

if (_ex.isSupported())
{
	trace("Please wait...");

	// to read only the selected barcode types. use an array to read one or more barcodes
    //_ex.open([Barcode.QR], File.applicationDirectory.resolvePath("com_doitflash_barcode_beep.mp3"), true, "Cancel");
	
	// to read all barcodes supported by the extension. read documentations to know which barcodes are supported.
	_ex.open(null, File.applicationDirectory.resolvePath("com_doitflash_barcode_beep.mp3"), true, "Cancel");
}
else
{
	trace("isSupported: ", _ex.isSupported());
}

function onCancel(e:BarcodeEvent):void
{
    trace("scan canceled")
}

function onResult(e:BarcodeEvent):void
{
    trace("type is: ", e.param.type)
	trace("data is: ", e.param.data);
}
