mergZXing for Android

Postby tfabacher » Mon Jun 30, 2014 9:57 pm

Any Chance? Or do you know of a way we can scan for Android devices?

We need to scan QR Code for both platforms.

Thanks,

Todd

It exists now! As with all my android stuff it's in beta and available to mergExt complete users until we get an official SDK.

Monte, I signed up as a mergExt complete user, downloaded this file and loaded your sample stack onto a Nexus 5 running 5.0.1. It works great! I'm not thrilled about having to ask a user to download another app (ZXing Barcode Scanner) to use my app. Is there any way to bundle that app with mine so they can be installed as one? If not, it being open source and all, is it possible you could bundle ZXing with your external?
Thanks.

Hi harper58

You only need to install Barcode Scanner or Barcode Scanner + if you are using the mergZXingBetBarcode function. If you are using the commands to create a control then you don't need it.

Cheers

Outstanding! I verified that. BTW, I think you meant mergZXingGetBarcode().
Thanks for being so quick to respond.

Hehe... I'm yet to implement BetBarcode where you pass in a parameter with the barcode you're looking for and win if that's the one the user scans ;-)

Monte, I found a problem. I had the barcode scanner working in my app until I added the following script to card 1. The fullscreenmode doesn't work when I put it in the stack script:

Code: Select all
on preOpenStack
   set the acceleratedRendering of this stack to true
   set the fullscreenMode of this stack to "exactFit"
end preOpenStack


The barcode scanner doesn't work any more. I'm using Win 8.1 and deploying to Android 5.1. Any ideas?
Thanks,
Rich

Hmm it doesn't work at all? Can you give me more details? Note that there's no way for externals to know about the fullscreen mode at the moment.

Monte, sorry I haven't gotten back sooner. The problem was actually with this line:
set the acceleratedRendering of this stack to true
With that in there the barcode instance doesn't appear - just an empty rectangle.
I'm using 7.04 RC2.
Thanks,
Rich

Hmm... yeah there's often issues with acceleratedRendering on Android. I did an app last year where we had to turn it off while presenting a player. You may need to just turn it on and off where appropriate in your app.

@danibravo

The mergExt android externals are not currently generally available. They will probably be re-implemented using infinite livecode once the first version of that is released.
