Hello ,

When I point the scanner on any random thing from y android phone , except barcode or QR code , it is generator an ID in a scanResult. It should not happen . Please let me know how can we avoid this.



Hi Arpita,

This is a known behaviour from this plugin and it's related to the framework that we currently use for Barcode Plugin. We're using the csZBar framework and this is a limitation that can't be fixed on the integration side.

Summing up, this is a limitation that we can't overcome.


Does this plugin read PDF417 barcode format type?
