    Usage

    Call .listen to capture scans using the device's physical buttons. Call .scan within your application to enable a "software" triggerd scan. You can disable the capturing by calling .release and enable it back by calling .claim followed by .listen method. You can also simulate a softare button to enable the reader behaving in the same way as the hardware scan button(s).

    TIP: In Ionic, in order to access the window property, you may need to add window: any = window just above your constructor.

    Enable listener

    window.plugins.honeywell.listen(function(data) {
      console.log('Scanned: ' + data);
    }, function (error) => {
      console.log('Error occured: ' + error);
    });

    Disable listener

    function disable() {
      window.plugins.honeywell.release();
    }

    Re-enable listener after being disabled (.release)

    function enable() {
      window.plugins.honeywell.claim(function(){
        window.plugins.honeywell.listen(function(data) {
          console.log('Scanned: ' + data);
        }, function (error) => {
          console.log('Error occured: ' + error);
        });
      });
    }

    Scan button simulation to enable readings from within your application

    Ionic JS/TS methods:

    scanPressed () {
      this.window.plugins.honeywell.softwareTriggerStart(function(data) {
        console.log('Software scan: ' + data);
      }, function(error) {
        console.log('Error occured: ' + error);
      });
    }
    scanReleased () {
      this.window.plugins.honeywell.softwareTriggerStop();
    }

    ...and the HTML:

    <button (touchstart)="scanPressed()" (touchend)="scanReleased()">SCAN</button>
