(a) I understand you dont support Xamarin at all but only native Android, iOS SDKs.  However, Xamarin.Forms is a cross-platform environment supporting Android, iOS, and UWP head projects and one could add native libraries to these.  Do you have an example to show how your native libraries can be used in Xamarin.Forms with .NET Standard 2.0?

<strong>I am afraid there are none that I am aware of.</strong>

(b) Any plans to support Xamarin.Forms .NET Standard 2.0?

<strong>None that I am aware of, I recommend you contact <a href="https://www.zebra.com/gb/en/about-zebra/contact-zebra/contact-tech-supp… technical support</a> as they would be able to route your question appropriately.</strong>

(c) Plans to support Xamarin.Forms including UWP?

<strong>Same answer as b I'm afraid.</strong>

<strong>Apologies I can't offer specific answers but I am not aware of the public barcode scanner roadmap.</strong>

Why do you call it Xamarin Crossplatform if you support only Android?  Are you planning or do you support Xamarin.Forms (Android, iOS, and UWP) crossplatform projects?  Where do I find relevant information to implement barcode scanning with external wire-connected barcode scanners to tablets or phones connected to them by wire?

Hi, right now we only offer Xamarin APIs for our <a href="https://www.zebra.com/us/en/support-downloads/mobile-computers.html">mo… computer</a> and <a href="https://www.zebra.com/us/en/products/printers.html">printing</a&gt; products.  I am not aware of any current plans to extend Xamarin APIs into our <a href="https://www.zebra.com/us/en/products/scanners.html">dedicated barcode scanner portfolio</a>.  It looks they just redesigned the website over the weekend but you can find the software for Barcode scanners <a href="https://www.zebra.com/us/en/support-downloads/scanners.html#text_d197">…;​, there are links to SDKs for Android &amp; iOS.

Hi Darryl and thanks for your answers.  I am confused when you say you "<em>only support Xamarin at all for our <a href="https://www.zebra.com/us/en/support-downloads/mobile-computers.html">mo… computer</a> and <a href="https://www.zebra.com/us/en/products/printers.html">printing</a></em><e…; products.  For mobile computing, we only support Android</em>".  It is kind of confusing "mobile computer" supports all Xamarin whereas "mobile computing" supports only Android?

I am not interested in mobile computers (which I understand are mobile devices with build in scanners such as MC45).  I am interested in handheld barcode readers such as this one <a href="https://www.barcodesinc.ca/catalogsearch/result/?q=Honeywell+Xenon+1900…; which looks very similar to your DS-series dedicated barcode scanners.

You are saying "<em>I believe you are developing for a </em><em><a href="https://www.zebra.com/us/en/products/scanners.html">dedicated barcode scanner</a></em><em> however in which case Xamarin is not supported and they only offer native SDKs for Android, iOS &amp; Windows (full, not UWP)</em>".  Yes, it is dedicated bc scanner.  We might be considering going with Zebra but I cannot find any example showing how to use these SDKs for Android, iOS and potentially UWP in a Xamarin.Forms project compatible with .NET Standard 2.0.

I am working in cross-platform environment which Xamarin.Forms is (also React-Native) and the last statement is really 3 questions:

(a) I understand you dont support Xamarin at all but only native Android, iOS SDKs.  However, Xamarin.Forms is a cross-platform environment supporting Android, iOS, and UWP head projects and one could add native libraries to these.  Do you have an example to show how your native libraries can be used in Xamarin.Forms with .NET Standard 2.0?

(b) Any plans to support Xamarin.Forms .NET Standard 2.0?

(c) Plans to support Xamarin.Forms including UWP?

Thank you

Also, I understand you support only your own devices, thanks for clarifying that.
But do you support Xamarin.Forms with .NETStandard 2.0 for all 3 platforms (IOS, Android, and UWP)?
Or if not, which one of these 3 do you support?
Do you support these with handheld barcode readers that are attached through the wire (USB)?
Thanks

We only support Xamarin at all for our <a href="https://www.zebra.com/us/en/support-downloads/mobile-computers.html">mo… computer</a> and <a href="https://www.zebra.com/us/en/products/printers.html">printing</a&gt; products.  For mobile computing, we only support Android, for Printing we validate on iOS and Android.  I believe you are developing for a <a href="https://www.zebra.com/us/en/products/scanners.html">dedicated barcode scanner</a>​ however in which case Xamarin is not supported and they only offer native SDKs for Android, iOS &amp; Windows (full, not UWP).  Which model of Zebra scanner are you targeting?  Thanks.

I have downloaded the sample app from following URL
<a href="https://github.com/darryncampbell/DataWedge-Intent-Example-3">https://g…;
The same solution is working fine with TC57 but not working on ET 56 tablet. The ET56 tablet have USB scanner DS3608 connected. Scanner is working if we focus on any text field and scan. My requirement is to scan barcode in a label like the way it works in the sample application. Do I need to do additional settings for ET 56 as it has USB scanner connected?
