    How to Scan barcodes and Qr codes using Intent broadcasts

    tiger point

      As your documentation is wide I am having a problem looking for what I need, so I am asking this question to get the right directions


      I want to scan a barcode and get its value

      I am trying to send an intent broadcast with a Receiver to catch the result in the onReceive function (using intent is the preferred way in my case)

      Broad cast intent is using

      > action: "com.motorolasolutions.emdk.datawedge.api.ACTION_SOFTSCANTRIGGER"

      > Param: "com.motorolasolutions.emdk.datawedge.api.EXTRA_PARAMETER" with value "TOGGLE_SCANNING"


      The beam is turning on, and when I point the beam to the barcode it is turning off making a beep sound but the onReceive of the receiver is not triggered


      I want to know the filter action that I should use to receive the result

      and to know what tutorials should I go for to go to the end of the road
