Scandit QR / Barcode


Scan QR Codes and Barcodes directly into your app via the device camera. This plugin is similar to our basic version with additional functionality provided by Scandit. An active Scandit license is required.

Implementation Guide

Once the premium module has been added to your app, you may use the following GoNative JavaScript Bridge commands to access its functionality.

To scan a barcode, define a function in javascript, for example:

function scandit_result(data) { 
    console.log('scanned barcode ' + data.code + ' of type ' + data.type); 

️GoNative JavaScript Bridge

To initiate a scan, open the url:

window.location.href = 'gonative://scandit-barcode/scan?callback=scandit_result';

By default, we scan for these symbologies:

  • ean13
  • upc12
  • ean8
  • upce
  • code39
  • code128
  • itf
  • qr
  • datamatrix
  • pdf417

If you would like to limit the list, you can add a query parameter with a comma-separated list of symbologies.

️GoNative JavaScript Bridge

For example, to only scan qr and pdf417 codes, initiate a scan by opening the url:

window.location.href = 'gonative://scandit-barcode/scan?callback=scandit_result&symbologies=qr,pdf417';

Note: For some symbologies such as code128, you will need to specify a parser to use in parsing the data. For example, you will need to add an extra query parameter, parser=dlid to your gonative://scandit-barcode call.

For example:

window.location.href = 'gonative://scandit-barcode/scan?callback=scandit_result&symbologies=qr,code128&parser=dlid';
