Android with RFD8500, how to switch from RFID to Barcode Scanner

Dear Support,

I'm testing your two demo app for RFD8500 (Zebra RFID Mobile and Zebra scanner). Is it possibile, once the RFD8500 is connected in the RFID Mobile, switching to the barcode "mode" ?

I would like to add an activity for barcodes inside the RFID app, but in the sdk I haven't found the command to start reading them.

In the Zebra Scanner App you use a totally different way of cummunication, and set up the communication with the SSI scanner serial port.

The only way to start reading barcode is disconnecting from the RFID and reconnecting with the bar-code port ?

 

 

thank you!

solved with code from demo

solved with code from demo "scan scan write":

private void SetModeBarcode() {

  Command_SetAttr attr = new Command_SetAttr();

  attr.setattnum(1664);

  attr.setatttype("B");

  attr.setattvalue(1);

  sendCommand(attr);

  sendCommand(new Command_GetVersion());

  sendCommand(new Command_GetCapabilities());

}

private void SetModeRFID() {

  Command_SetAttr attr = new Command_SetAttr();

  attr.setattnum(1664);

  attr.setatttype("B");

  attr.setattvalue(0);

  sendCommand(attr);

  sendCommand(new Command_GetVersion());

  sendCommand(new Command_GetCapabilities());

}

After switch to Barcode

After switch to Barcode Scanner mode, how to read the barcode data?

RfidEventsListener  only listen on  scanned RFID information.

It does not  handle the barcode scanning event.

Is there additional event listener I can add to handle the barcode data?

Package : com.zebra.rfid.api3 version 1.0.3.14
