Installation

Add the pdf417 plugin to your project:

cd <path_to_your_project>

cordova plugin add https://github.com/alejonext/pdf417-phonegap

Android

Add Android platform support to the project:

cordova platform add android

iOS

Add iOS plaform support to the project:

cordova platform add ios

Windows Phone 8.0

Add Windows Phone 8.0 support to the project:

cordova platform add wp8

Copy Pdf417/src/wp8/lib/Microblink.dll file to Plugins/mobi.Pdf417.Pdf417Scanner/ folder in your new project.

Sample

Here's a complete example of how to create and build a project for Android, iOS and Windows Phone 8.0 using cordova (you can substitute equivalent commands for phonegap):

cordova create testcordova
 
cd testcordova
 
# add the pdf417 plugin 
cordova plugin add https://github.com/alejonext/pdf417-phonegap
 
# add android support to the project 
cordova platform add android
 
# build the project, the binary will appear in the bin/ folder 
cordova build android
 
# add ios support to the project 
cordova platform add ios
 
# build the project 
cordova build ios
 
# add windows phone 8.0 support to the project 
cordova platform add wp8
 
# build the project 
cordova build wp8
 
# copy the Microblink.dll file to location in project as described above 

In phonegap CLI instead of "platform add" just request a build for the platform using "build android" or "build ios" or "build wp8". You will have to do the manual steps described above to be able to do a successfull build.

Usage

To use the plugin you call it in your Javascript code like the demo application:

var types = ["USDL", "QR Code"];

  • Available barcode types for the scanner are:

    • PDF417
    • QR Code
    • Code 128
    • Code 39
    • EAN 13
    • EAN 8
    • ITF
    • UPCA
    • UPCE
  • Additionally, USDL parsing is available when types array contains "USDL" string.

  • The following options are available:

    • beep - Boolean - set to true to play beep sound after successful scan
    • noDialog - Boolean - set to true to show confirm dialog after successful scan (license required)
    • removeOverlay - Boolean - set to true to remove Pdf417.mobi logo overlay on scan (license required)
    • uncertain - Boolean - set to true to scan even barcode not compliant with standards. For example, malformed PDF417 barcodes which were incorrectly encoded. Use only if necessary because it slows down the recognition process
    • quietZone - Boolean - set to true to scan barcodes which don't have quiet zone (white area) around it. Use only if necessary because it drastically slows down the recognition process
    • highRes - Boolean - Set to true if you want to always use highest possible camera resolution (enabled by default for all devices that support at least 720p camera preview frame size)
    • frontFace - Boolean - to use front facing camera. Note that front facing cameras do not have autofocus support, so it will not be possible to scan denser and smaller codes.
  • All license parameters must be provided (for iOS and Android and WP8) even if you do not plan to run the application on both platforms. The licenses that you do not have/use must be set to null.

  • For obtaining US Driver's license parsing result, see the sample code above, and usdl_keys.js javascript file which contains information about values which you can obtain from scanned USDL.
