I have enabled the scanner in my RhoElements application and I have alos fixed the screen orientation on the device.
But when the scanner screen comes up, it is in portrait mode. I'd like the scanner screen to be in landscape mode, but everything else to be fixed in portrait.
Is there any way to do that?
There is no way to change the orientation of the viewfinder. You can change the starting x,y and width and height to modify the default size and location (http://docs.rhomobile.com/rhoelements/scanner look for viewfinderX, viewfinderY, viewfinderHeight, viewfinderWidth)
Either way the bar code should be read in any orientation.
