I have tried the barcode example in the 6.0 sdk and here
and it does nothing when trying to scan any barcode.
how do you get the demo app to work?

After doing research and spending a lot of time figuring out why the scanner is not working I finally got a basic scanner working.
I’m still fighting with one issue with regards to the scanner, but If any further questions or issues let me know I’ll try to help as much as possible.

I am also testing the Barcode example on the Torch. I modified the example to expect BarcodeFormat.Code_39. I have two Torches - one seems to work fine, but the other apparently has a hardware autofocus problem - the image in the viewfinder is always blurry and the software is never able to read it. I read in the Crackberry forums that others have also had similar trouble:

Let me know the answers to the above and I’ll try to help you to get it to work.
PS: Why isn’t any of the so called BlackBerry Guru’s not talking about this topic. Read my posting on the following link as well [http://devblog.blackberry.com/2010/10/barcode-api/]

I hope you tried scanning holding the device in landscape. If not try like that on a big image of a barcode like the one I sent. If that also doesn’t work, it might be an issue with your device.
If you want to be a BB developer, you shouldn’t give up so easily. Almost everything is harder than it should be on BB, compared to Android, iPhone and Windows Mobile.

Installed OS 6 on my 9700 today with the sole purpose of developing a bar code reading app.
Have compiled and deployed the code example on my 9700 with the screen doesn't show the "display" or "scan" buttons. Can see them in the Torch simulator.
Will I be able (with mods) to get this working on a 9700 or is the screen an issue?
