Barcode and QR Scanning

If your application needs to have in-app barcode or QR scanner you can use the following code:

import BarcodeScanner from '@smartface/native/device/barcodescanner';

export default class PgBarcodeScanner extends withDismissAndBackButton(PgBarcodeScannerDesign) {

nativeBarcodeScanner: BarcodeScanner;

onLoad() {
super.onLoad();
this.nativeBarcodeScanner = new BarcodeScanner({
layout: this.layout // You can change this to any layout you want
width: Screen.width,
height: 343 // You can change this to any height you want
});
}
onShow(){
super.onShow();
this.initNativeBarcodeScanner();
}
async initNativeBarcodeScanner() {
try {
await this.nativeBarcodeScanner.checkPermission();
this.showScanPage();
} catch (error) {
// Handle permission error
await this.askUserForPermission();
}
}
showScanPage(){
this.nativeBarcodeScanner.show().then((result) => {
// do something with the result
});
this.nativeBarcodeScanner.startCamera();
}
}

In the above code we are using the BarcodeScanner to scan barcodes and QR codes.

In this example, before we can use the scanner we need to check if the user has granted the permission to use the camera.

After the scanning is done, we need to dismiss the scanner and show the result.
