How to use Barcode Scanning and Take Pictures

Hi Experts,

If anyone could provide a simple solution for using Barcode scanning to scan barcodes and CameraCaptureDialog to capture images.

A simple form that would have barcode scanning enabled on it so user can scan barcodes in a text box but the form should also have a button called "Camera" which when clicked will initiate CameraCaptureDialog so user can take picture.


The reason I am asking for this is because taking picture and scanning is triggered by the same button (big yellow Scan button) and I would like to understand how to make sure barcode scanning does not interfere with camera. 


I have similar solution as described above but in my case, attempt to call CameraCaptureDialog 1st time works, 2nd time it crashes with "An unknown exception".  If I comment out code that initiates barcode scanning, then CameraCaptureDialog.ShowDialog will not crash at all.


Much appreciated,
