BB10 Barcode API for WebWorks

[ Edited ]

Hey guys,

 

here is my problem:

I want to read a 1D Barcode (EAN-13) and achieved this on the playbook with one of the webworks community apis, sadly there is none for BB10 at the moment and I lack the skills to do it with the NDK myself.

 

Maybe someone of you had done this before and can share his solution with me and the community or has an idea he wants to share with me how to solve this problem. Any help is really really really appreciated.

 

Cheers,

Christian

Thanks for this smart suggestion, but maybe you should check the issue queue yourself before posting.

There already is an issue for this on https://github.com/blackberry/WebWorks-Community-APIs/issues/109.

Oh and as you might see I already took part in the discussion over there. Smiley Happy

There is now a official webworks plugin on github that provides the wanted functionality.
