Integrating taking photos from scanner DS3678-HP in Xamarin application


Audience

Taking photos from Xamarin application using the Android Camera API works, but does not work when taking photos from DS3678-HP scanner. Is it possible to get scanner to work like a data wedge to take photos similar to scanning barcodes?

Scanning ‘Snapshot Mode’ barcode enables image scanning and scanner takes the photo but does not capture the image in the default Android Camera application or our Xamarin application.

Anyone tried taking pictures from scanner that can be shown in Xamarin application?

Hi,

If you want to use the DS3678-HP to capture an image, you'll either need to use our 123Scan software, or develop an application using our scanner SDK.
