I’m looking for a solution for my app. I need a barcode scanner that works well both horizontally and vertically. I know you can achieve this with the [use external scanner] block and a scanner app but I want to do it all inside the app, so people don’t need two apps. It would also be good if it could work not only in full screen.
I’m looking for something for standard barcodes on products. I can get it working horizontally (by default) and vertically (using the external scanner setting with a different app) but I really want either a scanner with automatic screen rotation, a scanner that just checks in both directions or to be able to toggle between horizontal/vertical. It’s one of the biggest complaints about my app currently, as you have to turn the phone to scan anything.
have you seen BarcodeScanner component in app-inventor sources it uses zxing barcode scanner library, it says some where in that component source code something about lanscape/portrait scanning methods.
