How to use a Barcode Scanner in XAF Mobile

XAF Team Blog
29 June 2017

We've created a KB article that describes how to scan barcodes in your XAF mobile application using the Cordova Barcode Scanner plugin

In this KB article, we'll show you how to implement an Action in a DetailView to save a scanned barcode to a current object property. Additionally, you will learn how to access the PhoneGap config file (regular XML file), add the plugin to your application and get access to the camera functionality with it.
