Barcode scanners reads the barcode of a particular product. These include the 1D, or linear barcode, which appears as an image of parallel lines and spaces. There are different kinds of barcode scanners, some scanners use lasers, while others use lights or cameras, to capture the barcode image and turn it into an electronic code.
As here we are concentrating on Mobile App, the Mobile device camera will be used for scanning the barcodes.
Transcription and recognition errors are banished. Manual entry via a keyboard, for example, generates ten errors for every one thousand keystrokes.
Barcode systems reduce overhead and lessen training time. They allow immediate implementation of any changes to pricing entered into a company’s database.
Scenario where Barcodes can be used:
Barcodes are used for entering the Product details by a sales representative just by scanning the barcode number of the product.
It is also possible to search in a list of product via the barcode, scanned using the device camera instead of making the search by entering other parameters (for e.g. product id or product name) through the keyboard. (The detailed implementation has been explained after the following example.)
In the product entity we want to set the ‘productnumber’ as barcode type so when a field agent wants to get details regarding the product, he can use ‘productnumber’ field to scan the barcode number of the product and get the respective details.
Following are the steps to be followed to implement the same.
Check the Products View: The fields which had been formatted as barcode will have a scanner option adjoining it as shown in the below image.
