Integrate Barcode Scanner into ThingWorx

Hello everyone,

 

I need help on the following issue: we have tablets that are supposed to scan barcodes via the camera.

 

1st question would be: is there a capability within ThingWorx to use the camera to scan barcodes? And if so, how could we get it and how can we use the scanned data within a ThingWorx application. 

 

2nd question: If the scanning functionality within ThingWorx is not supported, could we integrate 3rd party websites that enable scanning (e.g. https://websdk.scandit.com/) into ThingWorx? If so, how can we use the scanned data within a ThingWorx application?

 

Has someone been able to achieve this? First steps on how to approach this would also be incredibly helpful.

 

Thank you!

Hello @HD_10225728 

 

As I can check there is no any inbuilt functionality within thingworx to support bar code scanner. However you can create a custom extension to achieve your requirement.

you can also refer following posts
