QR Scanner




  • tito santanna

    How can I use a scan block to scan a qr code, and then send the scanned value as the input parameter for a Web Service block.

    @Roy: This is not possible with the QR Scanner feature.
    @Luca: This is already on our feature request list. I currently do not have any information about when or if this feature will be released.
    @Hussam: This is not possible with the QR Scanner feature.

    Would it be possible to include two or more filters in the QR code? For an example by using the AppMachine filter expressions and JSON:

      "list": "Flowers",
      "filter": "Category='Large' AND Shop='New York'"

    This could be stored in the QR code and would provide a lot more flexibility compared to the current way of storing hard coded list and filter field relations inside the block and then storing only the keyword in the QR code.

    I have a webservice that takes an 8 digit integer (item code) and returns a specific item. Can I use the QR Scanner to scan a QR block containing the 8 digit integer, and get back a details page for that item? I know how to filter it if the webservice returns an entire list, but how do I pass a single value to a webservice using the QR scanner block?

    Hi Maria,

    It's really easy. Just add a QR Scanner block to your app. Then generate a QR Code that contains the following JSON:

    "block":"Name of your block"

    Where you should replace "Name of your block" with the actual name of your block.

    Can I scan a url qr-code, and instead of opening a page, submit that url to an api, to collect data?

    Hi Tito,
    That's a good question. However at this moment we do not support this feature. If you would like we can put it on the list of feature requests?
