    start the barcode scan trigger via chrome intent (TC55 Barcode Scanner)

    Gunnar Bohlen

      Hi!

      Inside the DataWedge documentation there are several parts explaining how to start the softscantrigger with an intent. Now I have made a WebApp and I am using the Chrome Browser. I like to make a "SCAN"-Button inside this App to control the barcode scanner and tell it to start scanning.

      Now I am not sure if it works at all as many attempts just not led to the result.

      My current part of the Code in the webapp looks as follows:

       

      <a href="intent://scan/#Intent;action=com.symbol.datawedge.api.ACTION_SOFTSCANTRIGGER;S.com.symbol.datawedge.api.EXTRA_PARAMETER=START_SCANNING;end">Scan!</a>

       

      If I hit the button I get the following error in the Android Log:

      I/chromium(29319): [INFO:CONSOLE(0)] "Navigation is unreachable: intent://scan/#Intent;action=com.symbol.datawedge.api.ACTION_SOFTSCANTRIGGER;S.com.symbol.datawedge.api.EXTRA_PARAMETER=START_SCANNING;end;", source: https://... (0)

       

      Probably it is just misformatted. Any ideas?

       

      Kind regards,

      Gunnar
