Scan barcode/QR code

The Action Node Scan Barcode/QR code may be used to scan Barcodes or QR codes. The Action Node may only be run from devices that have a camera.
An example setup of Scan Barcode/QR code is showcased in our Showroom! You may view a demo, as well as access the setup in Appfarm Create. If you do not have access, you may register here.


If the user declines the request to open the camera, Scan Barcode/QR Code will throw GetUserMediaNotAllowedError (Appfarm Error Code: 17004). One may use the Catch Exception Action Node to provide feedback to the user in this case.

Target Property

Select the data source where the value from the Barcode/QR code will be stored. The value will be stored as a String.
