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
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
