Android MergPopActivity & MergZXingGetBarcode not working

Post by William Jamieson » Mon Mar 16, 2015 4:31 am

Hello Monte,

I deployed your test stack for Merg Android and tested it on my phone just now. I got every one of the features to work except MergPopActivity and MergZXingGetBarcode(). Do these work for other people?

The error I get with MergPopActivity is "Out of Memory" and the MergZXingGetBarcode causes the app to crash pretty fast.

I am using a Sumsung Galaxy III with Android KitKat. Would love to see what I could do to get these working.

Thanks for your help Monte!

-Will

Hi William

Sorry the docs must be a bit out of date. mergZXingGetBarcode is now in the mergZXing external for android. The out of memory issue might be a bug with optional parameters. Could you try ensuring that even optional parameters are passed something even if it's ""?

Cheers

Yep! you were right, passing in empty parameters seemed to do the trick. Quick question, is there any limitations on the photo that can be passed in the PopActivity like size, alpha or format??

I don't know of any limitations.
