Hi Guys,

Currently building a mobile website. I'm currently generating QR code and reading it successfully from my pc camera. Is there a way to make it work on a mobile device?

Kind Regards

Werner

Hi Werner,

There's a different component for Mobile. It's a plugin that enables an application to scan barcodes and QR codes.
Check it out here: https://www.outsystems.com/forge/component/1403/barcode-plugin/

and let me know if it works :)

HI Werner.


If you use the version SimpleQRCode Reader on PC it also works on mobile, through the browser, chrome or firefox.
You can try it at https://meiras.outsystemscloud.com/DemoQRCode/QRReader2.aspx

@Vera Tiago: "building a mobile website"

@Miguel Meireles: It works fine on Android (Chrome browser), but not on iOS (Safari browser). Can you confirm it should work on iOS?

Thks.

Hi Vera,

I appreciate the reply but I am using a mobile site and not a mobile application.

Kind Regards

Hi Miguel,

I have tried using it through the browser on 2 iphones. Safari and Chrome did not work.

All android devices work perfectly. 

I have found a work around though so no problem. I'm using the ZXing Services decoder.

Kind Regards

@Werner Kotze: Assuming you found a work around to work on iOS, can you share what did you do? Thks
