Barcode Reader RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I want to create a barcode reader app which would read the barcodes of the products and give the complete details about the product such as product name, price, manufacturer etc. Is there a way to do this in WP8??

  • Yes.  There are several APIs out there that will allow you to look up product info.  To actually scan the barcodes you'll need a library - I'd recommend you take a look at http://zxingnet.codeplex.com/ which is a .NET port of the ZXing java library.
